On the UN World Creativity & Innovation day ifa laboratory director Johanna Suo, together with Prof. Khawar Hameed, and Peter Rudge founded the UK based company Artisans of Innovation (AOI). AOI is an innovation consultancy specialising in human-centric innovation and cross-sector ecosystem development.
You can read Johanna Suo’s first blog contribution “The role & value of culture creative industries during the covid 19 pandemic” on the website as well as learn more about the founding trio.
You need a 360 ° view in order to innovate, that is what brought Khawar, Peter and I together. We are on the same page concerning perspectives and understanding across sectors. In some ways humans have never been so connected as now, but what still persists is that sectors are still working in isolation. We all need each other in order to find new solutions, and to innovate.
AOI recently led the Webinar ‘How the Creative, Cultural & Digital Industries Can Lead the New Post-COVID Innovation Economy’ for EURADA – European Association of Development Agencies. On this page you will also find a 12 page summary as well as the recording.
