On 24 June STBY participated in the first co-creation event in The Netherlands. The dense program of presentations and workshops offered an excellent opportunity to get an overview of the various types of co-creation projects that are successfully employed in both industry and public sector. Some of the participating consultants are specialised in co-creation online, such as crowd sourcing, others are more focused on organising co-creation workshops in real life. This mix of practices proved to be very useful in establishing a broad understanding of what co-creation has to offer.
STBY lead two workshops during the event. Each workshop demonstrated and discussed a different case study. These workshops offered a hands-on experience with the co-creation methodologies STBY uses in her projects for clients.
The co-creation event was initiated by ReDesignMe and Syntens. The format and final programme for the day has been developed in the true spirit of co-creation, by involving the participants in an early stage in the idea storming.
