Design Thinking Innovation from Denmark to Devon
Thu 14 Apr 2022
This March, Supervisors and Centre Managers from libraries across Devon welcomed the opportunity to attend a three-day training course in Design Thinking. Design Thinking is a pioneering and human-centred approach to creative problem solving with the aim of re-imagining and re-defining the concept of ‘library’ as a vibrant, cultural and creative community space.
Led by Design Thinking ambassadors from the ultra-modern and inspirational Dokk 1 – a public library and cultural centre in Aarhus, Denmark – participants left enthused and motivated to put new ideas into practice that will revolutionise our library spaces.
Our library team left lasting impressions on our visitors from Dokk 1 too:
“We are overwhelmed by so many fantastic impressions… From our point of view we saw a homogenous group of people who really cared about and gave space to each other. That is a great fundament when working with innovative and open mindsets and new culture (it’s ok to fail, spend time reflecting and “what can I obtain in 5 minutes” instead of “how long time does it take” etc.).”
Watch this space for news of new and exciting projects that will come out of the Design Thinking process!
