K8 explores the role of co-creation methodologies in processes of
change, focusing on process, systemic, and transformation design.
Building on the experimental cultures of art and design, K8 remains
close to the peer-to-peer dynamics of existing and emerging digital
and data cultures. The non-profit research institute was developed by
people interested in organizing think tank, transfer, and training
activities for the Academy of Fine Arts Saar (HBKsaar) to share and
expand these methods with a wider community. Since then, K8 has
attracted interest, funding, and support from a wide variety of
sources to conduct an average of 25 individual projects per year with
private and public organizations and continue to evolve our innovation
and transformation frameworks through such exchange.
