Collaboratory Trailer Transcript

[00:00:00] Maya Haviland: Hello, I’m Maya Haviland 

[00:00:04] Nicole Deen: and I’m Nicole Deen. We are the hosts of Collaboratory, a podcast exploring co-creativity in action. 

[00:00:11] Maya Haviland: In each episode, we focus on stories and dynamics of co-creative practice we think need talking about. Things like what people actually mean by all these “co” words. 

[00:00:22] Dimitrios Papalexis: Co-creativity. 

[00:00:23] Shona Coyne: Collaboratively. 

[00:00:24] Stephen Osborne: Value creation. 

[00:00:25] Jilda Andrews: Collective. 

[00:00:26] Merryn McKinnon: Co-design. 


[00:00:28] Emma Blomkamp: Co-production. 

[00:00:29] Nicole Deen: In Season One of Collaboratory, we are asking what it takes personally and organizationally to enable co-creation to succeed. 

[00:00:36] Michelle Halse: How aware of yourself are you? Are you curious about other people and their opinions and their ideas? 

[00:00:43] Maya Haviland: Have you got an open mind to doing things in different ways? Is your organization ready to show up to be a good partner?

We will share stories about how people learn to work collaboratively and also talk about hard things like why the ideals of co-creativity can sometimes be so disappointing in practice. 

[00:00:59] Virginia Marshall: Co-design is a little bit irritating because just because you have Aboriginal people in the room, it doesn’t mean that you’re actually sharing that space and you’re being listened to. It just means that we are trying to have another buzzword, but what will the buzzword be after “co-design” and “co-creativity”? 

[00:01:17] Nicole Deen: We’ve made this podcast because collaboration and working creatively with others is needed in so many different settings, but we don’t often get a chance to talk about how we actually make it work, 

[00:01:28] Maya Haviland: or survive it when it doesn’t. So we are inviting people from arts, politics, research, education, public sector, and who are part of communities of many kinds to share their stories and insights from collaborative and creative practice in the real world. 

[00:01:44] Nicole Deen: If you are tasked with supporting creativity and innovation, or simply have to collaborate with others in your work or personal life, this podcast is for you. 

[00:01:53] Maya Haviland: And if you have less experience, but are collaboration curious, Collaboratory is for you too. Subscribe now, and you’ll find our first episodes in your favorite podcast app on September 7th.
