Inspiration Tour with Julka Almquist

Inspiration tours allow people to have fresh eyes and to see the world in new ways. They provide new pathways to think and feel more expansively and conceptually, creating new channels to find inspiration in unexpected places. Berlin is an ideal city for an inspiration tour and to explore the theme of history and innovation for libraries. Julka Almquist who has been leading these tours for several years is a designer and researcher with an interdisciplinary practice driven by a deep sense of curiosity.

Julka Almquist is a researcher, designer based in Minneapolis. Her work has been largely focused on cultural and civic institutions exploring how design and thoughtful visions of the future, can empower individuals and communities. She is a co-author of the Design Thinking For Libraries toolkit, which was created as part of a long-term engagement focused on innovation in global public libraries. She has worked as a design researcher at IDEO, and previously taught design students at Art Center College of Design and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She holds an interdisciplinary Ph.D. at the intersection of anthropology and design from the University of California, Irvine. Please visit her website for more information.
