Developing Ideas for Social Good

6:00p.m. to 7:30p.m.
Trade School Indy

Ideas are building blocks and our modern currency. We are living during an age many are calling the Idea Economy, yet ideas often have invisible and intangible connections, like roots below the surface, to places, things, cultures and other ideas that go unnamed and unattended to…These are often the very aspects of ideas that give them weight, impact, context and meaning--and make you feel inspired. In fact, these hidden attributes and connections may help solve a problem or point to important opportunities. Whether its an idea for a creative project, sustainable business, organizational strategy, event or book, learn how to add breadth and depth to your ideas through the use of tools and processes for critical and creative thinking and idea development. *Bring that skeleton of an idea you want to flesh out, or that vague feeling you might have one, and you will leave with resources, a schematic and an action list.

Bring one of the following:
a one-on-one sewing lesson (email your teacher before class to schedule)
a quality item of vintage clothing from the 60s, 70s or 80s
a quality used or vintage book ((literary, philosophical, cultural topics preferred)
a quality vintage vinyl record from the 60s, 70s or 80s
something else you'd like to offer (email your teacher before class)
teach a class (email Trade School before class)
the idea you wish to develop that you can share with the class
volunteer for this class as a facilitator (email Trade School before class)
