Quoted from his website http://www.thackara.com/:

“Project bazaars and festivals
On a larger scale, as Director of Doors of Perception, John also organises larger scale events and festivals in which citizens, designers, and grassroots innovators explore two questions: “what might life in a sustainable world be like?”; and, “what design steps are needed to get us from here, to there?”. In recent times, John was programme programme director of Designs of the time (Dott 07) in England, and in 2008 he was commissioner of City Eco Lab at the St Etienne Design Biennial in France. Doors events bring real-world sustainability projects together so they may cross-fertilise, and grow. “
