IDEA #5 is based on the question, “How might
we design an inclusive hybrid model that elevates
and amplifies the artists' compensation and art
in both modalities?”
This was the team:
The facilitator was Angela Kujava.
The Discovery Phase is how the team researches
and gains an understanding of the problems lurking
within and resulting in the Central Question.
During the Clarifying & Converging stage, the
team attempts to make sense of and coalesce
the data and insights generated during the
Discovery phase. Gentle guardrails are applied
to the information to lead to a central team
Following lunch and visit and talk with
Wynton Marsalis, the teams reconvened,
reviewed what had been accomplished
during the morning, and moved on to ideating.

experience of their concept or idea so they
can test and evaluate their thinking (an
Following lunch and visit and talk with Wynton Marsalis, the teams reconvened, reviewed what had been accomplished during the morning, and moved on to ideating. This phase of the day was focused on generating ideas for answering each team’s central question.
During this phase, each team member was given a sheet of 3 post-its across the top, where they were asked to think up 3 ideas for answering the table’s central question. Then the sheet was passed two times, and each successive team member added 3 more ideas. This led to 9 ideas per sheet, ideally 54 ideas per table. The post-its were added to a blank board in “idea clusters” by the facilitator.
Clustering helps us see key emergent themes of value. Colliding ideas gets to the heart of collaboration: together we can create concepts that none of us could conceive alone. Go team!
Ideas at table 5 circulated around tech, funding models, artist empowerment and political issues. The bulk of the clusters found their way into political issues and tech, with a good portion of ideas in artist empowerment.
In Affinity Mapping, teams have the opportunity to cluster and name clusters, or collide and combine ideas. The goal of Clsuters is to recognize emergent themes, and the goal of these colliding ideas is the heart of collaboration: realizing that together we can create concepts that none of us alone could conceive. Team! Table 5’s merged ideas included:
This sharing was then Dot Voted by all table participants (each participant was given 3 dots to use to vote wherever they favored an idea), resulting in the following focus statements to take forward:
