If you're HAPPY, and you know it.
What is happiness to you? Why and how do we seek it? In this issue of STORIESbyFF, we take a dive into this age-old conundrum to explore how the focus on happiness is becoming a central theme of inspiration for designers, artists and creatives alike.
Location: FUNAN SHOWSUITE (Junction between High St & Hill St)
Date: 21 Oct 2017, Sat
Time: 12 - 5pm
DOCUMENTARY SCREENING: IF YOU’RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT
An original documentary by FUTURE FAIR about happiness in design and art.
Happiness, a term that has an endless list of synonyms: joy, contentment, satisfaction, euphoria; a term that some do not even have words to describe. The conversation regarding the relationship between design and happiness has gained traction in recent years. Whether it is a witty billboard that made us chuckle on our way to work, or a well-designed ergonomic chair that fits perfectly to the contours of our spine, the experience of good design can lift our spirits and encourage our appreciation of aesthetics and it's functions.
CREATIVE SHOWCASE: POINTS OF HAPPINESS
A show-and-tell curation of artists, designers and creatives featuring their latest works, where visitors can exchange ideas on creativity and happiness.
Don’t worry, if the RSVPs reach capacity, there’ll be standing room on the day. First come first served! See you there! :)

LIFE DESIGN WORKSHOP
We are 3/4th of our way into 2017! At the beginning of the year, we all set goals that we hope to have achieved by December. But as we get caught up in the daily grind, it is all too easy to forget what we have set out to do. During this session we’ll learn to apply very simple tools, created by Stanford Professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans over 2 decades, that will help us to reflect on and take action about the course of our lives. Over the course of an hour, we’ll reflect on how we feel about the 4 major pillars in our lives: love, work, health, and play. Are we happy with the time we spend on each pillar? Which areas do we need to work on and why?

Regular activities will be housed at the showsuite; curated based on a collection of six passion themes - tech, craft, play, fit, chic and taste.
The Life Design Workshop is conducted by ClockOut Sessions, a community for the stressed generation to find space to mentally clock out from the hectic world around. This workshop is founded and facilitated by Shilpa S Nath, who is a life hacker and she has been experimenting with self-tracking since December 2016. She has been conducting series of experiments over the year to hack her mood, sleep habits, stress levels, focus, and overall well-being. She uses design thinking principles to consciously ‘design’ the life that she dreams of.
