This page contains materials and photos from a convening I hosted and facilitated with the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC and the Exploratorium in San Francisco. The two-day workshop invited exhibit developers, museum educators, grant leadership, and then a dozen Durhamites from various backgrounds — music, visual arts, social scientists, computer programmers, digital media, urban gardening, videography — to think together about experiences we might design as a part of our NSF-funded grant about social dynamics. It was inspired by an experience I had with the fine folks at Future of Fish in New Orleans in the summer of 2013. I've included links to artifacts from this experience to paint a picture of what happened.
The workshop culminated in five viable experiences, all of which have informed the work of the grant and several of which were realized completely.
