Large-Scale Interactive Designs

"We needed to create an attention-getting, welcoming space for getting feedback and participation from participants at the largest conference for community foundations in the country," explained Gabriel Kasper of the Monitor Institute. "Lynn Carruthers delivered. She drew on her tremendous experience and creativity with creating visual, interactive spaces and helped us conceptualize and design the exhibit space and then prepared us a fantastically successful eight-foot-tall 'innovation wall.'"

The 16' X 8' "Innovation Wall" provided an easy way for conference attendees to identify their roles within their communities. In addition to fostering group interaction, the resulting graphic display provided an interesting demographic breakdown of the attendees.

Clients are often looking for new and interesting ways to gather information and foster interaction between participants. Whether participants are encouraged to "vote" using colored dots, place their names on a map helping form regional communities, or indicate their participation in long term processes on a community timeline, unexpected conversations and connections can emerge that help groups work better together .

To break the ice at the beginning of a meeting, Lynn created a timeline of the history of the impact investing field. Working together, the participants of the meeting refined and expanded the timeline to create a more detailed history and shared story.
