Sensory Sundays @ ForesenseLab

A Future Explorers Club

An open call to all designers of the future:

We are creating a new world. We are merging the virtual and the physical. We are creating a new system of exchanging information. A new way of building and nurturing relationships.

ForesenseLab invites you into this new world where the paths are multi-layered, multi-sensory and complex. Where you need your senses to be actively engaged in many worlds at once. Where you need to be comfortable with a continuous state of uncertainty and excited about being an experience designer of your own life.

We need you to re-imagine the future from a place of inner peace. To collaborate on solutions to real problems. To integrate new ethics that honor the unknowability of your destiny. To feel into how the digital spheres can be more than a place of seduction and addiction. To learn what your responsibility is, and your virtual vocation.

This series invites a "future explorers club" of designers, ecosystem thinkers, architects and artists, to define the new social principles that could be making up 'A New Common Sense': a new internalized social contract of how we can design the future of the Web with heart.

Together we will explore the neglected parts of ourselves. What drives us? How can we truly connect to people beyond the social construct, and how can we incorporate non-technical, more intuitive, multi-sensory awareness in our design processes?

About the host:

Lisanne is the founder of the Amsterdam-based strategic foresight and experience design studio ForesenseLab. She is a sought-after speaker, tech-ethics consultant and futures-designer, and brings a creative approach to experience design with room for artistic expression and fluid design-thinking methods.

She will be moving you through a number of awareness cultivating experiences, from a grounding meditation to spatial sound experiences, conscious movement, visualisations and open conversations. After these experiences you will collaborate on collages to visualize what you have encountered in the realms of your inner world. To then, as a final ritual, share these reflections with the group.
