We are born to be creative.
The world is changing every single day with new challenges emerging every single minute. As members of the global village, we should learn to step into others’ shoes, and respond to the happenings and people around us – and this is the ultimate essence of ‘empathy’.
The root of creativity and the purpose of design rely on our ability to think and see with different perspectives. The process of practising creativity is indeed a set of design thinking that begins with empathy.
This year, PMQ collaborates with multidisciplinary creative partners and organisations, under the sponsorship of Create Hong Kong of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, to introduce design thinking to our kids through empathy in different daily contexts. Kids can experience this problem-solving methodology through iterative processes, namely ‘Empathize’, ‘Define’, ‘Ideate’, ‘Prototype’, and ‘Test’. They will be encouraged to think with different angles in order to understand the users’ needs and problems; and from that, develop possible solutions, and through realization they will struggle through the process of ‘attempt, failure, and improve’, and finally ‘succeed’. Interpersonal communications and collaboration will also be important elements throughout the whole training.
