“Releasing creativity is the fundamental way for humanity to grow”
When we spoke to Indy about Creativity World Forum 2017, he was a firework of ideas. So much so, that for a moment we nearly cleared the conference programme to do two days of the Indy-Johar-show! Short of that, look forward to his view on the city challenge: “How to transform city heritage into a city of opportunities”.
“I don’t think our dreams are big enough” was the first thing Indy said and he continued to explain that he envisions a societal system with conditions for radical hope built in – a system with inherent audacity. You read that right. He said system audacity.
He can talk like that, because he walks like that. Indy is an architect and co-founded 00 and has co-headed up two Impacthubs (here and here) and co-runs the dark matter labs and Wikihouse Foundation. He emphasises the “co” in front of all these roles, and that is one of the things that make Indy stand out as a serial entrepreneur. He dives deep into the detail and jumps up over the blue sky – where he thinks broad and wild with an amazing insight in to the mechanics of the world.
If you, like us, can not wait for a peak into the world according to Indy, check it out “Democratising Cities” or for a condensed version dubbed “Social innovation in the real world – from silos to systems” or read the “Compendium for the civic economy” here.
