Our largest Jam will continue the recipe for success as it moves into its eleventh edition*. And in the context of Corona, local hosts can choose to run offline, online, or mixed Jams in March OR June!
The biggest, oldest and boldest of the three Jams, the #GSJam appeals to everyone interested in a design-based approach to change. With its broad appeal, it’s a great place to learn – or get better at – a whole set of design tools, methods and mindsets, which can be applied to any project. Or for experienced participants, the unique Deep Jam challenge lets you test your skills against the clock, and against your peers on five continents. With usually over 100 Jam locations all over the world now even accessible online, you won’t have to look – or even travel – far to find a Jam site. Or why not start your own?
More locations are signing up all the time. If you have never tried online Jamming, listen to this Podcast to hear all about it.
So, you are thinking about hosting a Jam? To help you decide, we put together the answers to nine key questions on this concise Slidedeck.
If you feel ready, sign up to join the host community and make your Jam appear on the Global map of Jam locations.
