thinkARK began just over 10 weeks ago now with 3 people and an idea and now we want to share the idea and we would love you to come along and take part in our first ever micro event. Its kind of an experiment, its definitely fun and hopefully you will want to come back for more!

Anyway if you do here is the invite:

You are invited to an engaging two hours of connecting, agitating, creating, thinking and designing.

Responding to how can we use design thinking to improve Cardiff?
If you could do one thing, What would it be?

Join us at University of Glamorgan’s Atrium building (Cardiff City Centre) between 7pm – 9pm on Wednesday the 28th October.

About ARK
Historically the public has been told to be eco-aware, environmentally friendly, to be sustainable and to reduce, reuse and recycle. This has all been done through advertising and other media channels. The conversation so far has been predominantly one way and we want to make it open to all. ARK wishes to challenge current practices within the industry/design/advertising/community, around eco issues and sustainability. Through engaging with businesses, localised/fluid communities, and closer alliance with institutions of Higher Education. ARK aims to share these tools to achieve small steps for change. Projects will involve the public who wish to actively engage in social design issues and make a difference to their immediate communities.

ARK wishes to thank University of Glamorgan for allowing us to hold our launch event at their Atrium building.We would also like to thank OrangeBox for something very special?? (the first animal to join the ARK!!)And for their continuing support thanks also to attic 2, Ecodesign Centre and Hoffi

  1. Only found out about last night's even this morning! :) Sorry I missed it but interested to find out more. Eco issues and sustainability are close to my heart. I work with facilitating change, I'm a local business, and I believe in the power of local communities and networks.

    I would love to meet up / talk on the phone to find out more and see if I can get involved.
