Decentered Media Podcast 129 – Community Sensemaking with Carl Quinn

In a world that is often averse to change and over-standardised, it’s important that we keep pushing for social spaces that enable connection and creativity. Carl Quinn founded Solvers in 2018, a design-led company that facilitates creative, critical and imaginative thinking about problems that challenge businesses and people, such as climate change, AI, urban redevelopment and many more. We chatted over a coffee about what Carl thinks is inherently problematic in our consumer-driven culture, and what we need to do to inspire future generations to face these challenges with equanimity and imagination.

  1. Well yes, he is right. However reality is often different. A treasurer averse to change can be quite rigid in predicting the amount of money needed for doing the same activity that was done the previous year. Then, as I have done before we were able to make some changes, but I have had to pay for changing an activity out of my own pocket, even though I have been the fundraiser. Not everyone can afford to do that. I think Friends of Evington have a more flexible system now, but we still have problems.

    The song “Money makes the world go around” is also true.
