Grace is a design futuring and experimentation protagonist and conductor for human-centred design creating at the intersection of complex problem spaces driving transdisciplinary practices in speculative futuring, experimentation and participatory design. She applies systems thinking to her work to solve complex problems and design solutions that achieve positive societal impacts by putting experimentation and collective play at the centre of a creative innovation process.

Neo-tribes gather in public squares to celebrate citizen alchemy and the inversion of hierarchical political power

The ambitions for this project is firstly to strengthen the social bonds of the citizenry and to stimulate cognitive alchemy. Secondly, to understand the role of play in the public realm as a facilitator for participatory design. It will unlock the potential of place to stimulate civil discourse and explore the relationship between design and place-based social change in creating better urban experiences. We’re living in a time of great complexity; facing complex problems. As such, spatial authors require radical new approaches for design. We need new narratives, a new normal and a new frame of innovation that considers whole systems, and participatory authorship. This project aims to reframe city-making narratives to create a more democratised and equitable future. This project will play with the future and experiment with new conventions that redefine how spatial strategies and urban experiences are realised through experimentation and public discourse on alternative futures.
