WORKSHOPS | H1 2020



In this 90-minute interactive workshop, Rama Allen teaches audiences his method of critically and strategically evaluating technologically enabled concepts.

This system of inquiry builds upon and updates Marshall McLuhan’s Tetrad for the 21st century. Put simply, this method reveal insights and truths to pressure test creative ideas. It pushes us harder to create meaningful experiences and products at the edge of technology, blending tenets of futurism, strategic creative ideation, and media theory.

At the end of the workshop, which includes a hands-on group exercise, participants will walk away with a rigorous framework to understand the relevance, failings, and potential value of an idea.

This workshop is designed for small groups (>15) of mid- to senior-level creatives working at agencies, consultancies, and brands.
