Social Creativity – Exploiting the Power of Cultures of Participation

Social creativity and cultures of participation are facilitated by meta-design that allows stakeholders to act as designers, contributors, and decision makers in  personally meaningful activities.   This paper defines conceptual frameworks  and briefly describes  different applications  contexts  in gaining a deeper understanding of the challenges how to exploit the power of cultures of participation to enhance social creativity.

By studying  social  creativity in specific application contexts that foster and support cultures of participation, our research activities have contributed to and  enriched conceptual framework. Achieving and supporting social creativity is not only a technical problem; it requires new cultures, new mindsets, and socio-technical environments that provide people with powerful media to express themselves and engage in personally meaningful activities. Research activities have only scratched the surface of exploiting the power of collective minds equipped with new media. The challenges of  the complex problems that we all face make this approach not a luxury, but a necessity.
