FOCUS

In 2018, Palmwood will use design thinking to focus on designing at the intersection of four opportunity areas: creative economy, government, learning, and community.

 
 

Learning
Experiences

Working with organizations across sectors to design learning experiences, schools, and systems that ignite curiosity, creativity, and generosity across generations. We'll explore questions like "How might we strengthen the creative muscles of tweens and remove barriers that block their creativity?" 

 

Government
Initiatives

Designing far-reaching strategies, initiatives and policies that move us toward an optimistic and generous society driven by our creative confidence. We'll explore questions like "How might we take the 'Creative Pulse' of a nation and work to make the UAE the most creative nation in the world?

Community
Conversations

Bringing together people of all ages and mind-sets to foster dialogue, create new partnerships, and co-design solutions that leverage our natural curiosity and creativity. We'll explore questions like "How might we create experiences that enable people to connect and to learn from others with diverse backgrounds across the UAE?" 

 

Creative Economy

Empowering businesses, artists, and entrepreneurs across the UAE to help build the creative economy of the future. We'll explore questions like "How might we design post-work futures that blend the potential of Artificial Intelligence with the innate creative skills and emotional depth of humans?"
