3 questions to prototype with

At Out Loud — the midweek shuffle – we’ve been moving in leaps and bounds. This evening’s meeting was the team’s last chance to develop their ideas before moving into the prototyping stage. To get through this final session, we began working with 3 new questions.

1. Do you know what your project is about?
2. Do you know where your project is going to take place? (within the markets area)
3. Do you know what your prototype will be?

Out Louders were given 10 minutes to think about these questions. Once they had written them out, they were asked to stand up and, within a very tight time frame, present them to the team, who responded with feedback. I’m going to use Niall here as an example, who’s project is focused on promoting engagement:

1. Do you know what your project is about?
My project is about engaging/encouraging people to imagine the markets area in new ways. Highlighting parts of the market that are unused.

2. Do you know where your project is going to take place? (within the markets area)
This will depend on what the prototype is. Hoping for an area that is active.

3. Do you know what your prototype will be?
No ideas for prototypes as of yet.

Honest answers there from Niall. As a next step, Out Louders were given a further 10 minutes to develop prototypes. After the ten minute time frame, each team member was invited to feedback to the team who offered more feedback. Using this process, presenting and feedback, has helped to broaden the scope of the projects and enrich the relationships they have with each other. Next week, we will get down to making the prototypes.
