Laying the foundations for a more balanced, diverse, inclusive, and collaborative health(care) design community, this forward looking, emergent, evolving, and highly interactive and participatory program will explore compelling visions for a new and more desired future; challenge and invite each participant to become an active collaborator in the realization of the new future; propose an initial design for the structure of ongoing, year-round collaborative engagement; and map the preliminary, agreed ‘next steps’, with commitments to specific activities, that will unfold the transition towards the new future. In this program, we will draw from the teachings of Janus – requiring that we begin our new journey by, first, looking back to capture our ‘learnings and wisdom’, serving as our touchstones as we progress into the present.

This program is the first part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Learn how do new visions become future shaping
2. Understand how to influence the mainstream
3. Explore how can we design more caring environments
4. Learn how can we measure our progress.

G03: The Generative Space Primer: Learning From The 2017 Generative Space Award Recipients

MODERATOR
 
Wayne Ruga, PhD, FAIA, FIIDA, Hon. FASID
Founder and President, The CARITAS Project

Meet the recipients of the 2017 ‘Generative Space Award’ (to be announced). See their submittals; learn from their presentations; engage with these leading pioneers in a discussion about how both systemic and sustainable improvements to health, healthcare, and wellbeing can be made through the design of the environment; and then plan your own strategy for submitting your pioneering projects to the 2018 ‘Generative Space Award’ in June 2018. This program will draw, further, from the present view of Janus – as we celebrate the designation of new exemplars of more caring environments and attempt to gain new ‘awareness and insight’ to illuminate our journey towards a new, more desired future.

This program is the second part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Learn how ‘action research’ can be applied to healthcare design projects
2. Understand how to make systemic and sustainable improvements with generative space
3. Explore how generative space can improve lives, organizations, and communities
4. Understand how to make an award-winning submittal to the ‘Generative Space Award’
5. Learn how to design more caring environments with Generative Space

Executive Vice-President of Patient Care and Ambulatory Innovation, Women’s College Hospital

In this presentation - fifteen months after receiving the ‘2016 Generative Space Award’ - the lead award recipients will reflect on the key learning design features of this progressive facility; discuss the design highlights that enable sustainable performance improvements; describe new organizational initiatives and their associated proposed design strategies; and explore new understandings of how Generative Space can be used to improve health. Again, drawing from the view of Janus, this presentation opens up the future focused space for the exploration of ‘new possibilities’ – in a real time laboratory that will inform our emerging future visions.

This program is the third part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Learn what Generative Space is, and how we know that it is present
2. Understand how designing with Generative Space can produce sustained performance improvements

This program will be a ‘laboratory’ to listen and learn – directly - from Younger Generation Representatives, as they explain how they each imagine they will become our future healthcare design industry leaders and what support they will need to accomplish this. This program will provide a platform for ideas to be freely expressed and discussed without judgement or criticism; enable Younger Generation Representatives to contribute toward the shaping of their futures; and create an opportunity for participants to develop new understandings of future leadership needs. Clearly, as would be evident to even Janus, this program is leading into the uncharted territories of ‘new possibilities’.

This program is the fourth part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Learn how ‘listening and learning’ are integral elements of Generative Space
2. Understand why ‘listening and learning’ can open up the space for ‘new possibilities’
3. Explore how to listen generatively
4. Hear what is a ‘new paradigm’ and how does it transform mainstream practice.

This program will also be a ‘laboratory’ for listening and learning – this time for the purpose of hearing from Agents of Change, as to how our healthcare design industry (and the HFSE) can become a more healthy reflection of our greater world (as well as becoming a mirror for the world to see the shape of its new, future-self reflected in). However, this is not just an ‘arm-chair’ listening session with smart, successful talking heads. IT IS AN ACTION PROGRAM, where all attendees will be expected to join the team that creates the new future visions. This radical ‘new possibilities’ program will provide a platform for ideas to be freely expressed and discussed without judgement or criticism; enable the Agents of Change to contribute toward the shaping of our collective future; and create an opportunity for participants to develop new understandings of future leadership needs.

At this stage, Janus will be applauding our courage in fearlessly challenging the status quo, and aspiring toward ‘new possibilities’ for a new future.

This program is the fifth part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.

, To Be Announced

An ‘open space’ program, with the opportunity for all HFSE attendees to openly, freely, and candidly contribute their views about the agenda for the next 30 years, we will actively welcome all input and views; facilitate the expression of creative contributions; value all that is contributed; and provide a structure and prioritization for the realization of ‘Next Steps’. In this program, the new future vision will emerge and become clarified – through discussion, argument, debate, chaos, and confusion. If you have ever wanted to put your own ‘two cents’ into designing our collective healthcare design future, this is the program to attend.

This program is the sixth part of the progressive journey of Generative Space Track programs, culminating in a free, all-community event on Wednesday afternoon, 20 September, where the clarity, design, structure, and tangibles of our new future vision will continuously unfold throughout these programs. Attendees are invited to participate in any or all of these programs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Learn how to cultivate a more Generative Space to create ‘a place to flourish’®
2. Discover how to discover how to know ‘what we don’t know we don’t know’
3. Understand why future organizations will have ‘heart centers’, rather than ‘headquarters
4. Hear why it is crucial that we value – and listen to, to fully understand – all voices
