Design thinking can be utilized in any development process, but one of its strengths is the ability to include many different voices. On December 2, Elise Lockwood and Emily Cornetet will share about the development of Remix the Symphony, an interactive experience developed by Ball State University's Center for Emerging Media Design and Development in partnership with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
During the workshop, learn how the Ball State team tweaked and developed new design thinking exercises that allowed them to manage the needs of two sometimes disparate audiences: the Indianapolis community of Fountain Square and the community of the ISO. In two of the phases of design thinking - empathy and ideation - they developed new versions of classic exercises that can be applied in any situation where a team is trying to connect two communities.
Learn how to apply this new "mixture of place making and design thinking" to your own situations and walk through a new case study with fellow attendees.

Remix the Symphony is an interactive experience developed by Ball State University's Center for Emerging Media Design and Development in partnership with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Through live events and digital content, Remix the Symphony brings new audiences to classical music. The ISO already has a ton of amazing programming – the goal of Remix the Symphony is to share that with people who don’t consider themselves the usual audience for classical music concerts.
