Antwerp Service Jam 2020
Be part of this year’s Global Service Jam, and join the Antwerp Service Jam from March 20 to 22 for a fun weekend of hands-on creative problem-solving and prototyping around real-world service challenges while you work together with an amazing mix of like-minded enthusiasts.
100+ cities around the world will work simultaneously for only 48 hours (or less!) and prototype services inspired by a secret global theme.
No experience with Service Design? Great, you'll learn a lot! No experience with changing the world? Great! You'll experience a whole new feeling!
If you want to experience the service design process hands-on with a diverse group of people, and learn or share design tools and techniques while tackling a global service challenge, join the jam. In small teams, Antwerp Service Jam will take you from challenge to ideation, prototyping and pitching your solution, providing tips and tricks along the way, and feedback from a jury at the end.
Who can participate?
Diversity breeds the best ideas, so basically anyone can join the jam! Students, professionals,… whether in the design field or not, you are welcome to participate, no prior experience in service design required. Just make sure to bring an open mind and a willingness to work together.
