its inception, slowLab has enabled public dialogues to advance understandings of Slow design while promoting the important
role of communication and collaboration in Slow design methodology.
Slow dialogues began as forums
in which intimate groups of creative thinkers gathered to collectively
explore the concept of Sslow' and its potential applications
in practice. Those
first dialogues were recorded and the transcripts of some gathering
published to the slowLab web site
to be read through by the community at large and
serve as a resource for participating members of our network.
then, the Slow dialogues have evolved to include presentations
of recent and proposed slow design projects, which are then open
for discussion, critique and co-designing by interested members
of the public in attendance. With the publication of a 'Slow dialogue toolkit' in Spring 2013, the Slow dialogues will expand to be hosted by a broader spectrum of our network and interested members of the general public.
for fun, there
is a link to excerpts
from our very first dialogues held between April and December
