Facilitating a design bootcamp for school teachers / Egypt / January 2018

What happens when teachers from all over the world come together to discover how simple creative problem solving can change the conditions of their own teaching context?  What happens when they learn to connect deeper to their local communities and undercurrent challenges? What happens when school teachers facilitate students to explore their local communities through simple design tools?

Some of the questions I will be exploring in Luxor Egypt this month with a group of stellar designers and facilitators.

Organised by Challenge 4 Change LTD
Facilitated by senior designers & educators with a solid worldview.
Our collective experience: IDEO / Kiva / Harvard University / Stanford University  /  United Nations Development Programme - UNDP / American University Cairo

Dear Community,
A thought to share that I am excitingly exploring new professional adventures! Over the last few weeks, after completing my PhD thesis, I took my time to transition. Now, I have opened up more space for collaborations, new business and to co-create meaning. This note serves to share the things I am creating and the opportunities I am seeking as designer-researcher. Here is an invitation.
