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.


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.
