N Square Workshop

Thanks to everyone for joining us January for a collaborative and productive session! Below you will find research materials we shared as well as materials we developed together. Please contact us if you have questions on anything!

 
 
 

 

Research findings

Share the presentation or read the PDF of our research findings around evolving the nuclear conversation — creating more effective, connective messaging to drive cultural and political change.

 

 

exercise 1: From > To

In this exercise, newly informed by the research finding, we made lists of where the nuclear risk reduction was moving from, and where to move it to.

We got ambitious — allowing the ridiculous and sublime in order to come back to center. Top voted ideas are listed here, or download the full workshop presentation below.

  • If > When
  • VR (virtual reality) > IRL (in real life)
  • Old Kitsch > Oh Crap
  • Power > Responsibility
  • Non proliferation > Oh shit
  • Fear > Outrage
  • Headspace > Heartspace
  • Death > Justice
  • Yours > Mine
  • Smart > Savvy
  • Caricature > Character
  • Salt > Curry
  • Noise > Harmony
  • Guys in a room > People on the street
  • Voyeur > Participant
  • Presenting Facts > Telling Stories
 

 

Exercise 2: disruptive innovation

During this exercise, we invented disruptive ideas to eliminate nuclear threat — imagining the future we all desire, and mapping the pathway to get there. 

This exercise applied IQ/EQ/SQ and the messaging guidelines to a future story. The read-outs from these stories are part of an unlisted playlist accessible through the below link.

 

 

Exercise 3: hashtags and symbols

In this exercise, inspired by the SVA Graduate work resulting in "We Are All Targets" symbols and #Radioactivism, we developed hashtags and symbols that turn nuclear risk reduction from a message to a movement.

Top voted ones like #Disarmageddon, #NotMyApocalyse and #MichelleDover are bolded.
