"If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original." - Sir Ken Robinson Intentions, is a collaborative project between Arne van Oosterom and Kate Andrews.

The aim of this project is to create a book of compelling stories from around the world, capturing how creative people struggle to make a difference, in an indifferent world.


The book 'Intentions' will tell stories about the importance of making mistakes. Because from failure we learn and grow. This is what being creative is all about. It is about learning by trying, sketching and experimenting. It is failure which makes us grow the most, not 'success'.

Intentions puts the importance of failure center stage for a change. As project researcher I would like to request your help! So, do you have a story to tell us about?

Please send your story (400 words max) before Tuesday 14th April 2009, to kcandr (at) gmail (dot)com, arne (at) designthinkers (dot) nl or myredjotter (at) gmail (dot) com
