About the speaker
Scott Keoni Shigeoka is an artist, designer, writer and community builder. Currently housed at IDEO’s open innovation and social impact arm, his work explores questions around collective action, distributed leadership, decolonizing design, healing and innovation at the edges. His projects focus on human experiences—death, identity and belonging—and have been featured in Variety Magazine, MTV, The Washington Post and Fast Company. He loves freestyle rapping, islands (born in Hawaii, Fulbright in Iceland) and tree houses, like the one he had growing up. It was his sanctuary, a space where he felt safe to be, wonder and heal. Now he’s asking: What are the tree houses we can build for others? Scott is writing a book about people living on the outskirts of society and is a student of Japanese tea ceremonies and wabi-sabi (侘寂). His favorite word is ‘komorebi’ (木漏れ日) which means the sunlight that shines between the leaves of a tree. Learn more about him here: www.scottshigeoka.com
