Following a successful pilot in 2014 — a two week ‘creative incubator’ in partnership with London-based advertising agency Mother forming a
‘pop up design studio’ with 20 UAL students — we’re launching the next iteration of the initiative under new brand ‘Collabology’.
The inaugural Collabology workshop will take place at Somerset House, London in partnership with makerspace Makerversity 13th-24th April 2015. Deakin will lead 20 selected UAL students through an intensive two-week programme designed to help participants better understand their skills and passions, grow their creative confidence and collaborate under pressure. In an ambitious educational experiment, two satellite groups of students — 20 in Manchester and 20 in Falmouth — will participate virtually in the entire process. Working in disparate locations and linking to the London Hub, these students will make use of cutting edge collaborative digital tools that are shaping the contemporary workplace.
