ACT-NOW! Join… “The Innovation Journey” Experience and ACCELERATE!

Dear all - this small poster is the first step towards our initial grant request for taking the Innovation Journey "on tour" with an aspired grand final at the London Shakespeare Globe Theater.

ACT-NOW! The Innovation Journey - The Inaugural Experience - Some Feedback

Dear all - text alone cannot share the actual experience of an "Innovation Journey" event, but unfortunately, we have to make do with that for the moment. We can share videos ( and ), share pictures ( ) and share feedback from the participants (see below and anonymized to protect the innocent from the perfect memory of the Internet). In the end however, there is no replacement for going on the journey yourself ; so, do reach out to arrange YOUR experience! In any case - some feedback. The Innovation Journey is based on a small story of how innovation really works (see “A Really Really Good Idea” at ) and the workshop is itself an innovation journey – a safe simulation of what the big journeys of change truly look, feel, smell, sound and taste like!

World Premiere of the "Innovation Journey" Play-in-a-Day - Wow!

  On Wednesday 14 October 2020 the world premiere of the "Innovation Journey" Play-in-a-Day occured during the Galileo Innovation Week in Padova (See ). Six students of the CONTAMINATION LAB VENETO had bravely volunteered to meet the unknown and met at the Cultural Centre of Padua (See ) at 9 am to prepare for THEIR story at 5 pm in front of perhaps 200 visitors in the audience. We had ONLY THREE HOURS to prepare and the nervousness mounted over time! We had met in a short Zooom on the preceeding Friday and did cheat a little in that everyone received the play script after that call (See ) and thus had a little time to explore the story they were being asked to present. In addition we decided to use the opportunity and ask Professor Piero Formica to act as "advocatus
