Join the HDK students in making a Collaboratory game!

Hi Collaborators!
Have you seen the drawings that are up on the wall, by the black sofas?
At the x-mas party last Tuesday, we had a small workshop together with the people who were there. The drawings are thought to be for the Collaboratory game – a game that we would like to make with you if possible. As the characters of the game also should be you (the collaborators), we asked the people who were there to draw themselves and write down the skills and tools they have. Also, everyone drew a part of the stage set for the game – which is based on how you perceive the space of Collaboratory.
It would be awesome if you guys who missed the party also could make your characters and a part to the stage set. There are papers and forms on the chair by the black sofas for anyone who wants to ad themselves to it.
* Make your collaboratory character.
* What Is Collaboratory for you? Make a part for the collaboratory game.

Who are we?
Some of you might have seen us walking around at Collaboratory during the last few weeks. We are three students from HDK (a design school here in Gothenburg), where we study a master program in Business & Design. At the moment we are exploring space and workplace to see how they affect creativity, innovation and organisational culture. Us being at Collaboratory is part of that exploration and so is the game.

Visitors from the North

On the 28th of november we, a delegation of executives from the Cultural department of Bollnäs municipality and the project coordinator of a pilot study for the development of a social innovation space in the same area (among other things), made visit to Collaboratory. We enjoyed a warm welcome and presentation/guided tour by Jasmine; as well as a particularly rewarding discussion and insight into her thorough knowledge and experience in establishing innovation spaces and social entrepreneurial projects (and so much more…). Thank you for all the inspiration and knowledge you shared with us – you’re simply awesome It can not be stressed enough that you have done a such an impressive work and that Collaboratory is a very inspiring and not at least, important space in many senses. This off course, also goes to all the partners involved in Collaboratory (with a special hello to Henrik). We hope to see you soon again and enthusiastically work at sketching the outlines for social innovation/makerspace/entrepreneurial possibilities up here!
