Panel: Inspiration / Outspiration: where do ideas come from?

Room: 311
Time: 16:30 – 17:25; Friday 25 September

What is the best way to spark great work? We are presenting a panel of designers and artists who approach their work in ways that cover a spectrum of being inspired from external understanding (e.g. ethnography, there user-centric, generic collaborative art and design), generic buy through personal internal inspiration, however they define it. The discussion will include the the role of personal spark versus (or combined with) an empathic, externally-influenced approach and what to do when these are in conflict. The panel will be moderated by Nico Macdonald, with speakers Duncan Arbour, Claire Rowland and Brendan Walker .
