Intuition is indeed the instrument by which we often deliver cultural insights, but it is also a way for the corporation to diminish cultural intelligence by calling them “soft” “vaque,” and “impressionistic.”

As we become more expert, more professional and more disciplined about our study of culture, I hope we will encourage a new comprehension of what culture knowledge is and how it adds value.

 

 

 

Culture Camp led by Grant McCracken

Friday, 13 June

A Culture is at the core of the creative’s professional competence. It is the well from which inspirations and innovations come. It’s one reason that startups and corporations need the cultural creative. This culture camp is designed to enhance your personal creativity and professional practice.

This culture camp is designed to do two things:

Expand your knowledge of the big changes transforming culture.
Develop your ability to put this knowledge into action.


Knowledge of culture

We will look at 10 events shaping culture.
Half are structural changes:
  • The end of status as the great motive of mainstream culture.
  • The end of cool as the great driver of alternative culture.
  • The movement between dispersive cultures and convergent cultures.
  • The movement between fast cultures and slow cultures.
  • The shift from a “no knowledge” culture to a “new knowledge” culture.
Half are trends:
  • Transformations in the domestic world (aka homeyness to great rooms)
  • Transformations in the scale and logic of consumer expectation (from the industrial to the artisanal)
  • Shifts from old networks to new networks (especially for Millennials)
  • Shifts from single selves to multiple selves (especially for Millennials)
  • This one is ‘top secret’ and will be revealed on the day]

 

Utilizing knowledge

Using our understanding of culture, you’ll learn
  • How to discover culture (using ethnography)
  • How to track culture (using anthropology)
  • How to hack culture (making memes)
  • How to build a brand
  • How to make yourself indispensable in the corporation
