Radical Curiosity

Product shelf-life is rapidly diminishing across most sectors, due to rapid changes in technology, demographics, and resource scarcity. At the same time, traditional innovation models do little to address the world’s needs for equity, sustainability, and joy – some stakeholders are overlooked, and many solutions sub-optimise. Knowledge Management (KM), which has historically been positioned in a support role, has not been seen as part of the solution. ​

Radical Curiosity uses arts-based interventions to access our hidden knowledge, and it shifts the perspective on both stakeholders and outcomes. Radical Curiosity takes a page out of KM’s playbook by working with the individual and team to get there. ​

With this approach to innovation, Stephanie Barnes and Katrina Pugh explore gaps in modern innovation models, providing explicit techniques for accessing our individual and collective humanity to develop innovations. They show that by engaging the arts in this way we can diversify inputs, validate options, and amplify solutions. Those solutions are more responsive to the needs of society and nature. ​

For more information or if you would like to engage Stephanie and Kate to help your organisation meet the demands of the 21st century you can contact them through their LinkedIn profiles: Stephanie Barnes, Kate Pugh.
