Learn Do Share is …

a global event
Learn Do Share is a social innovation hub and 
a vehicle for creative sustainability. It is
 an internationally roving event for those who create, free to participants and run
 by volunteers in the spirit of collaborative culture. Reboot Stories designs these gatherings around sharing ideas and resources that help creators to fund, create, distribute and sustain their work. Experimental elements that explore the future of social innovation are complimented with talks, networking and playful activities that are meant to spark the imaginations of many. To see a listing of all our events visit www.events.learndoshare.net

a book series
Learn Do Share is a book series that captures storytelling experiments at events, workshops and labs. The result of our open collaboration are rather unusual look-do-and-think-books that explore the methods we used, pitfalls we encountered and lessons we learned when we try to trigger social innovation with playful, experiential stories.

a set of collaborative experiments and methods
Learn Do Share is partnered with Reboot Stories. We like to experiment and play with concepts from various areas. Our globally roving event series is a testbed for a variety of labs that aim at designing with participants. At the moment we run the following:

•    a one-hour Wish for The Future Open Design Challenge experiments with different methods to let 15 to 600 people prototype a wish (connected to www.wishforthefuture.com).
•   a 1.5 hour story-led game around a Wish For The Future
•   a StorySprint is a mix of design thinking, storytelling, game mechanics, co-creation management and transmedia production.
•    multi-day workshops called Reboot Labs

a resource on collaboration, design fiction and social innovation
Focusing on the cross-section between design thinking, collaboration and storytelling, we release new content quarter-yearly. In addition to our changemaker conversations we create a series of case studies and templates, each of which explains and reflects on collaborative experiments and social prototyping. Our work is developed by scientists, storytellers, designers, hackers, producers, fans, architects and engineers.

a place to collaborate
We’re an international community of creatives and welcome collaborators from all over the world. Together with our participants at diy days we establish a directory to harness content, community and activities. We gradually grow this effort into a larger entity, providing a platform for the diy days community to set goals, recap, peruse and reconnect.
