MADE as a place to exchange and design together - 2

Vorige week organiseerden we een ‘Make a Difference Event’. Geen jubileum of lustrumviering, geen strategische conferentie, maar een experiment om ruimte te creëren voor collectieve reflectie en onderzoek - door onszelf en anderen uit ons netwerk - naar de vraag: wat willen en kunnen we nog meer neerzetten om bij te dragen aan het welzijn en leervermogen van individuen, wijken en organisaties.

On MADE: our Make a Difference Event - 1

Last summer, the realization that Kessels & Smit, The Learning Company would turn 40 this year inspired a lively conversation within our group. Main question: what is our contribution and place in this current day and age and what do we want it to be for the next timeframe? What kind of company are we and do we want to be? What are our strengths, our DNA, our purpose and what doe those mean on a practical level in todays world? What can we learn from our past and how do we envision our future?

We soon realized that we didn’t want to investigate these questions by ourselves. So we decided to invite others with similar questions and aspirations to join us. Not to assist us in our search, but to engage in their own search – and thereby collectively creating a space for inquiry and creativity. We thought that would inspire us and challenge us to look beyond our own frames. Besides, the idea that we could use our own quest to inspire others in theirs, energized us. Could we use our own questions, rather than any answers that we might have, to create a space for learning and investigation?
