Spark Your Senses with Scentstorming
Inspire the brain to think in unusual ways, particularly when finding, framing and solving problems or facing the unknown. The purpose of the Scentstorming kit and activities is to foster connections and inspire creativity in individuals and groups; to think in new ways about your challenges and opportunities and face them with enthusiasm. Scents are stimuli that trigger chemical reactions, which in turn elicit memories and inspire imagination. These sparks create points of departure for new thinking about a specific topic (which may have nothing to do with the scent itself.) In the end, you will solve problems, generate ideas, and explore creatively in ways that depart from the scents, but they are a fantastic catalyst to start the process. Join Idea Farm's Tamara Christensen, Founder, and Kim Larkin, Senior Associate, as they take us through Scentstorming in a hands-on workshop focused on the PDT&IC audience. AGENDA 6:00pm - Mingle and enjoy free food & drinks 6:30pm - Scentstorm with Tamara and Kim 7:30pm - Closing 8:00pm - Done! PARKING You may park in the covered, member parking lot.

    What we're about

    Phoenix Design Thinking & Innovation Collective aims to bring people together from a wide variety of industries, backgrounds and roles to collaborate and discuss practices, methodologies, tactics and experiences to help us collectively bring innovative ideas to the world. We are proud to be the first satellite chapter of the Seattle Design Thinking & Innovation Collective because we share their vision to build a community of innovators, design thinkers, and creative catalysts who are passionate about design thinking and bringing creative confidence to their teams and industries. We believe that by sharing ideas, methods, and stories with each other, we are all better equipped to lead a creative revolution for ourselves, our colleagues and our industries.

    Who should attend? Anyone who is currently trying to build an innovation culture in their organization, anyone who is curious about design thinking and creativity, and design thinkers who are already practicing and want to connect to the greater Phoenix innovation community.

    What will you get out of it? A network of fellow creatives and catalysts, new ideas for your own practice, and case studies and tips for how to bring innovation tools and mindsets back to your organization and teams.

    Your Hosts: Tamara Christensen of Idea Farm is delighted to be hosting this Meetup series and is always on the lookout for like-minded collaborators who want to co-host. Interested in sponsoring, hosting or facilitating a future Meetup? Email me at to discuss!
