With the focus of SXSW Interactive leaning toward funding and startups this year, I discovered something of a countertheme – new interest in things that celebrate an “artisanal quality” that connects you to the creator of a work.

In that spirit, I was lucky enough to get my hands dirty (literally) in a workshop for Reboot Stories‘ new project Wish for the Future.

The project, run by Janine Saunders and Workbook Project founder Lance Weiler, seeks to put people with big ideas for a better future (especially kids) in touch with people who can prototype their ideas.

What we saw at SXSW was a microcosm of the project, with the attendees breaking off to brainstorm, gather input from the group, and build a physical representation of an invention out of play-doh (which, in our case, ended up being a network of remote medical care technologies).

The experience was frantic and enjoyable, and allowed us to get to know fellow attendees in a way that was unlike the usual networking exercises of a conference. It was a chance for us to get away from prepared pitches and talks for a short time.

Our contributions, along with the ones submitted at the project’s site, will be used to create a time capstule of futurism in the year 2012.

Janine Saunders, creative producer of Robot Heart Stories, talks with us about how Robot Heart Stories used transmedia strategies to engage underprivileged elementary students in collaborative learning.

Hosts:
Nick Braccia from Culture Hacker
Robert Pratten from Transmedia Storyteller
Haley Moore

(and Host Emeritus Dee Cook from Dog Tale Media)

About the Project

In Robot Heart Stories, two groups of students – one in Montreal (French speaking) and the other in LA (English speaking) – used their developing knowledge of math, science, history, geography and creative writing to get a stranded robot back to her home planet. The robot’s ten-day journey from Montreal to LA culminated in its arrival at DIY Days LA, where we sat down with Janine.

About Our Guest:

Janine Saunders is a creative producer who has worked on Collapsus, Pandemic 1.0, and produced the Workbook Project’s RADAR series. Working with Workbook Project founder Lance Weiler, she was the producer of Robot Heart Stories.
