Laying the foundations for a more balanced, diverse, inclusive, and collaborative health(care) design community, this forward looking, emergent, evolving, and highly interactive and participatory program will explore compelling visions for a new and more desired future; challenge and invite each participant to become an active collaborator in the realization of the new future; propose an initial design for the structure of ongoing, year-round collaborative engagement; and map the preliminary, agreed ‘next steps’, with commitments to specific activities, that will unfold the transition towards the new future. In this program, we will draw from the teachings of Janus – requiring that we begin our new journey by, first, looking back to capture our ‘learnings and wisdom’, serving as our touchstones as we progress into the present.

This program is the first part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.


1. Learn how do new visions become future shaping
2. Understand how to influence the mainstream
3. Explore how can we design more caring environments
4. Learn how can we measure our progress.
