ChaOS has co-organized various workshops around the world focused on Innovation and (Collective) creativity fostering and training. Our approach is - interactive education and education augmented by mobile IT-ecosystems.
We develop methodologies and systems in an agile evolutive way, in lean cycles. Each workshop is accordingly a moment for us to evaluate our approach and system, to learn and to improve it.
ReMaking Tesla on Tour 2018
Poetry on the road
In the initial phase of the project we already gathered 50+ poets collaborating in 8+ languages - on topics of migrations, being a refugee.
The Poetry on the Road project is envisioned according to our belief that resolving the world’s hottest social issues requires both rational and emotional (even non-verbal) dialogue. Yet а solid structure and guided behavior are essential for these aspects of dialogue to coexist. Accordingly, our consortium of poets, artists, and researchers in the fields of psychology of (collective) creativity and creative writing, theatre practitioners, and IT-developers proposes the development of an online+offline IT-ecosystem that will support cross-border multidisciplinary Art + Science dialogues on critical social questions. It will be available for free to be used by other organizations/communities. It will be based on the Colabo.Space ecosystem and the CoLaboArthon framework, already used across 3 continents.
Hand And Voice (Рука и глас)
is a project (enabling deaf teenagers and poets to co-create poetic performances), executed in Serbia, being a prototype of CoLaboArthon.
Poezin, UTLOSS and ChaOS representatives executed this project, and its both instances were supported by Serbian Ministry.
Tyumen, Siberia, Russia, 2017
**Project connecting poets and painters, through journalists, with real-life stories from Siberia, Russia. **
We see benefits for journalist, through provoking long creative leaps, helping them to see facts from a different viewpoint, to see creative/dramatic/emotional details, and through improving collaboration among journalists.
It was fascinating to see, when put in the right atmosphere, in an artistic environment (even through a socio-IT ecosystem), and provided with a customized inspiration, how poets can create a poem of a good quality in a short time. Under these requirements poets created poetry that is deeper connected to their initial emotions, coming from their guts, and more inviting for further artistic collaboration.

Knowledge Federation Biennial Conference
Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik, Croatia
This international conference is envisioned to provide space for experts and business innovators to brainstorm and federate knowledge and actions on topics like “Tools and Practices for the Collective Mind Revolution”. ChaOS, as a federating member of Knowledge Federation, supports its organization, focusing on providing of technologies and methodologies for networking, knowledge sharing and energizing.
ChaOS took part in this inspiring community of evolutionary learning labs, that understands that new education paradigm is emergent and organic, so it cannot be mechanically “assembled”. It can only be grown by those who already hold some of the keys of the future.
ChaOS members were one of educational innovators who want to create a society based on a collaboration, co-creation, collective wisdom, and compassionate development.
We presented our research on collaboration methodologies and organized a ColLaboArthon through 2 workshops - at the 1st we used Colabo.Space (CollaboFramework) to identify challenges in “IT augmented and collaborative Education Systems”; on 2nd we worked on specific ColLaboArthon “game mechanics” and emotionally energized content. Presentation/play in the form of Jam Session Flash Mob at UCLA was an outcome of these multiple steps.
