Our society is becoming more complex and diverse day by day. Finding a way to design the future with our own hands has become the fundamental problem for us today. To be creative in such a society, we must create our own visions, and design tools and methods to make those visions a reality. In this course, we think a “Creative Society” as a society where people create their own goods, tools, concepts, knowledge, mechanisms, and ultimately the future with their own hands. Creation in this society is no longer limited to just companies and organizations, but is entrusted to each and every individual. We invite guest speakers who embody the concept of creative society, and talk about their ideas and experiences. Based on these talks, we will write pattern language for creative society, where patter language is a method to scribe out the practical knowledge related to a certain field of knowledge.
