TRANSFORMATIVE SOCIAL INNOVATION

Transformative Social Innovation is about improving the social interaction between people in such a way that they embrace or come up with new ideas, perspectives or solutions. Innovations that tackle social, environmental, economic and/or cultural challenges. A social innovator connects people and organizations around a certain topic. He facilitates the process of co- designing and co-creating and knows how to stimulate this process, based on knowledge and experiences. The content of the programme is based on 3 designs.

HOW THE PROGRAM IS ORGANIZED

Our programme is strongly connected to the real world, you only work with real challenges and clients. We designed a programme in which you have a high level of freedom. The core of the programme is the Expedition. We challenge you to dive into your area of interest by doing research and by developing a professional view of and role in this area. Based on your areas of interest we help you to build up your own network of clients. Instead of following lectures, you work together with experts, coaches, other students and members of the Performatory community. As a member of the Performatory community you can work at our co-working space at Breda University of Applied Sciences.
