Our 'Small Changes for Big Impact' series is about taking those important first steps toward realising your big dreams. As a purpose-driven organisation, MAKE is keen to share what we've learned about amplifying impact for the benefit of people and planet. Each workshop includes practical, real life examples and knowledge you can apply straight away.
We've designed the series so you can start anywhere and do activities in any order you'd like. While each workshop is self-contained, doing them together gives you a powerful set of complementary tools you can use in your work. Best of all, you don't need any prior knowledge or experience to join in.
Let your imagination take shape by exploring ideas in a physical space. Using low-fi props such as cardboard boxes, we'll build variations on our designs to discover new experiences. This workshop is a collaboration with our partners BETA by STH BNK and Crowd Productions.
