WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS TO JOIN THE 2019 COHORT.
SELECTED FELLOWS WILL JOIN US AUGUST 4-11 IN THE FINGER LAKES REGION OF NEW YORK AS WE LEARN THE ODYSSEY WORKS METHOD AND COLLABORATE IN THE CREATION OF A PERFORMANCE FOR AN AUDIENCE OF ONE.
This is an unprecedented chance to join Odyssey Works Directors Abraham Burickson & Ayden LeRoux for one week in The New York Finger Lakes to learn our secrets from 18 years of designing experiences for one-person audiences. The cohort will work collaboratively to study the life of our chosen participant and design an interdisciplinary experience for them that will take advantage of the local surroundings.
Odyssey Works' Directors will facilitate a dynamic and energetic collaborative environment. We will hit the ground running. We will present concepts of empathetic design, teach methods for making diagrams, and practice creating spaces of intimacy and curiosity. Each fellow will be selected for their particular expertise, and we will work across disciplines to create a transformative experience together. Days will be spent researching our chosen participant, collaborating in the development of particular moments for them, and learning the Odyssey Works approach to experience design. Each fellow will return home seeing their personal, professional, and creative lives through a new lens.
Be prepared to spend the week deeply immersed in creative research, design, and production. We will be in an incredibly beautiful environment, and the project we complete together will be demanding. We will live, eat, and work together full-time.
