LEARN DO SHARE LONDON
Learn Do Share came to the UK for the first time ever on 5-6 September 2014! After introducing Learn Do Share to Ravensbourne, a partnership was set up with Lance Weiler's Reboot stories to bring together creatives and technologists (and beyond!) to be inspired by and get involved in storytelling and tech.
Learn Do Share (LDS) is a grassroots innovation engine; a combination of events, labs and peer production. A community for open collaboration, design fiction and social innovation.
The three words LEARN, DO and SHARE embody the event philosophy: learn from everyone, do by prototyping, share what we learn.
Our events and labs are gatherings for ad-hoc groups to meet, ideate and work out concepts for a common good.
Our peer production cycles help groups stay together to co-create prototypes of their collective imaginations. The most prominent are Caine’s Arcade, My Sky Is Falling, and The BUKE.
Our books, documentaries and projects are carried forth by our participants to inspire other people to do the same.
Our Learn Do Share lab’s methodology and framework, which we like to call an OS (operating system) is being adapted by Universities, non-profits organizations and makerspaces as a tool to help tackle wicked problems by harnessing storytelling, play, designing thinking and collaboration. Over the last four years, we’ve collaborated with Jorgen van der Sloot and FreedomLab to design and prototype a social innovation lab to explore solutions for complex problems. The Learn Do Share lab runs at our events as well as having been staged for Columbia University, the UN and the Danish Government.
