Corona forced us to postpone our March Jam 2020, but came back in August with a new concept: The Satellite Jam!
Participants were split into groups like before, but 2020, each group had their own location, all in Kreuzberg. Groups were limited to 5 persons + 1 coach to permit social distancing. We streamed all of the instructions and meetings to the satellite locations, and delivered food and snacks directly there.
Service Jam Berlin
In a spirit of experimentation, co-operation and friendly competition, teams will have 48 hours to develop brand new services inspired by a shared theme.
The Service Jam Berlin is part of this global event and will be open for around 40+ service design enthusiasts who are eager to learn new methods and tools and share their experiences.
A design jam can best be explained when it is compared to a music jam. For music jams people with various skills come together to play music. It is all about playing with each other, creating a unique atmosphere and learning from each other. The goal is not so much to produce a fantastic studio album. As an outcome some music jammers will form a band after the jam, others simply learned new ways of playing music.
A design jam is very similar. Design professionals and people interested in the topic come together to work on a challenge for 48 hours. Even though the jam will be based on a user-centered design approach, there are no set rules on how to solve the challenge. The final outcome can be a scenario for a service concept, a physical prototype for a product, a movie and so on.
Jam Berlin is a non-profit gang of international service design aficionados who all share a common belief that collaborative tools and design processes can be used to create positive change.
