On Wednesday, July 26 we want to engage all of you in some organizational hacking! With the guidance of Yulia Kryazheva & Sebastian Olma from the Serendipity Lab in Amsterdam, we will take the chance to get down to SUPERMARKT’s most valuable resource: Serendipity.
Wait, what? Se-ren-di-pity?
Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it (Wikipedia)
So: what does this have to do with a space like SUPERMARKT? The answer is: everything.
The mere physical presence of talents in a space does not automatically bring about the positive factors of (functioning!)
coworking environments, such as: innovation, unexpected encounters, shared knowledge and an expanded view on everyday’s problems and solutions. For these effects to emerge we need a great deal of experience in designing collaborative space, as well as concrete facilitation & moderation techniques.
What we hope to achieve during this one-day lab is a case study on the serendipitous quality of our space. We want to understand better how you relate to our space, what you contribute, what you get out of it and how we can unfold our potentialities. We are calling everyone who regularly uses the SUPERMARKT space, gives workshops, drinks coffee or organises meetings here to take some moments of feedback and reflection. You are welcome to meet Yulia and Sebastian for short interviews during the morning of July 26. Please help us unlocking the hidden potentials of the SUPERMARKT platform by sending us a short feedback on how you experience the space and the people here. If you want to contact us via mail: please send a note to info [at] supermarkt-berlin.net with the subject line “serendipity”.
During the afternoon of July 26, we will gather the team, look at the results and draw learnings from your input. We will report the key findings back to you in the form of a blogpost, that will follow soon after. Thanks for your support!
