Co-creation in a digital space

Phase 1: Concept Workshop — Online

At Snøhetta, we use concept workshops to gather creative perspectives from across an organization. But we have always done these collaborations in person, where participants can build physical models that represent their concepts and share ideas over coffee or tea. 

To be true to the Wikimedia Movement, we needed to innovate and offer an online version of this creative exercise. We wanted to make sure that people could collaborate no matter where in the world they were. 

Staying true to our method we created an online experience using simple online tools. We also maintained our standard agenda and prompts so that the results of our online collaboration could be directly comparable to the in-person workshops.  

Overall, we hosted three online concept workshops with 27 participants from 13 nations. 

We are excited to share the outcomes of the workshops soon
