HUMANISE is an open and playful innovation experience that demonstrates in a rapid format, how services, events and products can be co-created to meet the significant social needs of New Zealanders.We use visual methods to build faster and share our thinking more effectively.
Users (citizens, researchers, companies, public institutions, NGO’s etc.) that enter HUMANISE get access to tools, new technologies, knowledge and skills in order to experiment with and prototype solutions. In return those users share their ideas, knowledge, skills, and experiences with others and in some instances with socially-engaged organisations who bring a challenge to the group.
Our experience is active, playful and visual. We aim to understand significant points of view, brainstorm options, and then focus on the most feasible propositions.
We believe in the wisdom of groups with the right facilitation. There are no pre-requisites except a respect for the clock, each other, and creative processes that may require us to let go of our assumptions for a time.
Our design jam format can "apply the heat" to a notion for change that is good for your organisation, neighbourhood, city or country. If you have a notion or initiative in mind, contact us for a chat - you could be our next guest presenter or host!
