Summer is over and we're happy to announce this joint meeting of ATX Speculative Futures and our sister organization, the Central Texas chapter of the World Future Society.

Speculative Futures - Austin Co-Organizer Adam Zeiner will be leading a Design Thinking workshop on Wednesday September 27th focused on Applying AI to Disaster Relief. All donations and proceeds from the event will be donated to the Greater Houston Community Foundation.

While our meetings are free, we ask that you make a contribution to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by Mayor Sylvester Turner and County Judge Ed Emmett. Donations will also be accepted in the form of cash or check at the door. For more information regarding the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, go to:

The Design Thinking Workshop

Complex problems and unclear goals are an all too common reality. Both issues can shroud any endeavor in ambiguity, and lead to overlooking the route of the issue at hand. Join Interaction Designer Adam Zeiner at Capitol Factory to demystify the process of identifying the right problem(s) to solve.
Adam will lead a hands-on introduction to Design Thinking and how it can be applied to tackling these large problems with unclear goals. Participants can expect an introduction to the foundational components of design thinking while getting out of their comfort zones and interacting with one another in a guided format.

"I’m a systems Designer focused on services, experiences, interaction, and product.
For me Design isn’t just about artifacts, it’s about systems thinking.
Design is not chaos with coincidental harmony, it's harmoniously weaving disorder into flexible frameworks. For me about me, my portfolio site can be found at"
