Today is the start of the fourth onedotzero_cascade where this years graduates are from 16 creative disciplines from 29 university across the globe including Italy, Slovak Republic and Spain. This years cascade is held at the Red Gallery in Shoreditch.
The morning session kicked off with an informal introduction/workshop led by Andrew Armes and Darius Norell from The Spring Project. The Spring Project is a collaborative development programme that provide World-Class training and helps people learn how to create extraordinary value, enabling them to support themselves and those around them. The workshop was a success as all the participants enjoyed the challenges that they were presented with and finished the morning session feeling confident and ready.
In the afternoon, the graduates were joined by Kevin Palmer from Kin for a fantastic presentation about the importance of collaboration. Collaboration is key to Kin’s work ethos and that their work is about people, the spaces between them and their connections to the world around them.
The day ended with the cascade brief ‘delve_living in the layered city‘ set by onedotzero’s director and co-founder, Shane Walter. Examples included exploring your city from signage and typography to editorial messages. The city is extraordinary and the challenge is to read the city through its architecture. Two of the groups will be awarded a fund from IdeasTap to go towards the development and creation of their ideas, announced on 24 November at the BFI Southbank during onedotzero_adventures in motion festival 23-27 November.
Tomorrow, Sam Payne from Mother London will give a presentation on the importance and understanding of insight. We have a very exciting days ahead of us so watch this space, cascade facebook and twitter posts for an update of DAY 3 at the onedotzero_cascade 2011 workshop!
