Next session: Exploring unspoken truths to inspire the brief and envision new products and services. March 21-23, 2017. Colorado Chautauqua, Boulder, USA.
This is a workshop for user experience designers, strategists and product leads who want to change the world—nestled within one of earth's most inspiring settings.
Unspoken truths and innovation?
Every brand, product or service has its own fundamental truth. We’re an innovation company, or we put people first, etc. But few brands address the unspoken truths that are abundant in our lives — the elephant-in-the-room problems that resonate with each of us at a personal and cultural level. That’s what people really talk about. And that’s where the most impactful innovation opportunities often reside.
In this collaborative, hands-on workshop you'll learn how to create a framework for exploring the unspoken truths in life, in business and across culture. You’ll learn how to convert these insights into actionable products, services and experiences. And you’ll discover how to make them the primary fabric of your customer’s journey, from end to end.
“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale. All you need is a seed.”

Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.
If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
