A Year in Review

2015 has been a year like no other. That is nearly an understatement. Exhibit Change has continued to grow and morph and there is a lot of exciting changes coming in 2016.

While there haven’t been nearly enough updates as to what is going on, that doesn’t mean nothing has been going on. In fact there has been a ton.

This year, I partnered with Blair Francey of BF Design to start the Department of Imaginary Affairs. The DIA is all about bringing forward ways to foster imagination about city building and urban planning. Our main focus has been on getting our youngest citizens involved. We started with a Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Installation called The East Side Story.

In another collaboration, I along with Trey Boden have been doing a podcast called This Is Iterative. The podcast is all about design and education. Season 1 aired earlier this year and we are in the process of taping Season 2. 

I also spent the year working with organizations such as Success Beyond Limits, Green Change and YouthREX to do design thinking workshops and projects.

And last but not least, I am starting my greatest new adventure. I had a baby!!! Baby Jackson was born on August 20th. He is the most unbelievable learning I have ever had.

I hope 2015 has been exciting, fulfilling and a rollercoaster of learning like mine.


ps. Very excited to announce a new workshop called Design Thinking For Educators. Join me and Heidi Siwak on February 20th for this extremely unique workshop specifically designed for teachers. Registration is open now. Early Bird is on until January 1. Register here.
