"Working with Leyla Acaroglu in the Disruptive Design Masterclass got me to walk away from my own "expertise.” It helped me to see how the craziest, most impossible ideas can often offer better solutions to intractable problems. It was a great experience." - Lynda Decker, Designer NYC Masterclass Participant

DISCOVER HOW TO APPLY THE DISRUPTIVE DESIGN METHOD FOR ACTIVATING POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE BY DESIGN
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The workshop focuses on actively applying the Disruptive Design Method of mining, landscaping and building for activated social change.
Using applied systems thinking, action research and the ideation process, participants will uncover new ways of thinking through the complexity of the issues at hand and develop disruptive approaches to evolving system failures and externalities.
Over the course of two days, you will learn to love the problem, cut through the frothy stuff, map connections, think in systems, and activate your agency to create change. Arrive in the morning with an issue area, project or problem that you want to work through, walk away the next evening with deeper insights and practical strategies for actively intervening.
This program is for established professionals and covers an array of critical thinking practices, including systems thinking, life cycle thinking, research strategies, applied systems intervention, cognitive and behavioral sciences, ideation and creative problem solving, and more.
Throughout the two-day intensive workshop, participants will unpack and work through a real world problem (either one you choose to dive into, or one provided by us) and, through this, will learn how to apply the Disruptive Design Method to their personal and professional practices of influencing systems and activating change.
The three-part method we will work through in this workshop, is the applied version of our Disruptive Design Methodology; a holistic approach to complex creative problem solving. It combines sociological inquiry methods with systems and design thinking approaches to create a method of developing systems interventions that enact social and sustainable change.
