Abstract:

If learning is transformative, then what potential transformation could happen with learning Indigenous Knowledge(s)? This Major Research Project is the story of my learning journey as I seek to better understand the intersectionality of creativity and innovation at an individual level, and how this meeting place intersects at an organizational level in higher education. I explore how power dynamics and different worldviews (Western and Indigenous) influence the innovation process, while observing the learning through autoethnography, specifically reflexive practice. Bringing attention to the interplay between creativity, power dynamics, and Indigenous Knowledge(s), I note the relative constraints and freedoms among these three domains, offering dialogue for action, as I design for conversation. This project is about bringing awareness to systems and ideologies that can inspire and promote change within oneself. It is a synthesis of the change I have undergone; it is the story of how I became a Designer.
