WORKSHOP

Data Walk Workshop

Data Walking is a workshop format that challenges the current understanding of data. By walking through, investigating, mapping, discussing and visualising data, it aims to stimulate new ideas and debates around widespread datafication. Developed by A. Powell, data walking constitutes a new form of reading (smart) cities. We have conducted the workshop at various conferences such as re:publica or information+.

MEETUP  

Sustainable Tech Meetup

The sustainable tech meetup series explores, maps and discusses the intersection of digital human rights and climate crisis. It aims to find ways of connecting the critical tech / tech for good community with current debates on sustainability. Hence, it advocates for  sustainable social, environmental and technological futures.

GAME

PITCH TANK

In the self-designed board game PITCH TANK, business ideas emerge within seconds. In three phases the players develop their idea, collect know-how, and choose their business model. With questions such as “What happens if your fashion brand suddenly has to work with AI?” or “How can I obtain venture capital with my idea of a  smart watering-can?” they have to meet the challenges of the start-up world with creativity and boldness.

ABOUT

MOTIF is an independent think tank founded by Katrin Fritsch and Helene von Schwichow. As we have both backgrounds in science and industry, we like to research urgent societal questions and to translate complex contexts into creative, accessible formats. 
Critical, yet constructive. Future-oriented, yet based on the present. Tech-savvy, yet human-centric. Interested? Contact us: contact@motif-institute.com

MOTIF is an independent research institute and creative agency founded by Katrin Fritsch and Helene von Schwichow. As we have both backgrounds in science and industry, we are able to link different contexts such as cultural studies, digital technologies, and strategic communication. This allows for an interdisciplinary approach that focuses on long-term developments rather than short-term hypes. The digital sphere is our area of expertise. Our aspiration is to work on cutting-edge innovations without losing the sight on larger economic and cultural dynamics.
