Healing through creativity Aparna Hariprasad
September 05, 2019

In my time living in Seattle, I stumbled into the world of arts for social change: I started working with Path with Art, a local nonprofit which provides arts classes for adults who have experienced homelessness and other traumas.

Purpose: The emerging question (6 Ps of Experience Design) Peter Linett

What’s place got to do with it? (6 Ps of Experience Design) Peter Linett
August 12, 2019

Place is another big determinant of cultural experiences, and it has two obvious components: Geography (where in the community does the cultural experience take place? on whose turf?) and setting (what’s the envelope for the experience, and what kind of engagement does it encourage?)…

Curate the crowd, too (6 Ps of Experience Design) Peter Linett
