Ideation: A Session to Generate Content Ideas from an Ad-hoc Network
Concurrent Session at the upcoming OMA Annual Conference 2019: Net[works] Benefit!

Speakers (from left to right): Austin Strutt, Exhibitions Coordinator at Dundas Museum & Archives, and Amy Hetherington and Peter Pavement, Surface Impression Canada 

When bringing together networks of people to collaborate on any project, how do you generate useful ideas from the network without it descending into chaos or being dominated by predominate biases? This session will introduce, and apply, a simple framework that will help with idea generation in a way that can be replicated in your own work.
