WHAT WE DID

11:15 Workshop: Future Imperfect
Strategies For The Future
15:00 Introduction: The Future // Imperfect Lab
We warmed up after Sørens talk with the question: “What is automation to you and how do you see it developing?”in order to engage everyone in the process, create safe spaces for expression, and diminish power differentials
In order to see and hear what is happening in Aarhus, and open the conversation we talked about what’s alive in the system in groups: From your perspective, how is your everyday life (workplace / school / community) being affected by automation?
We started to identify patterns or recurring themes we have noticed in the conversations and look at the bigger picture by discussing: How are these experiences and observations related to each other?
Next we started to narrow down and chose 2–3 themes to develop by mapping Why / Who & Where / challenge / opportunity.
In the end the groups presented their results back to the rest of the participants.
