The International Center for Studies in Creativity recently hosted the 2012 Creativity Expert Exchange– a forum devoted to supporting the research & practice of creativity.
My workshop- Towards Global Creativity– explored cultural definitions of creativity in an increasingly interconnected world & examined theories that propose certain geographic locations have creative advantages. Participants carried out a Creativity Attribute ranking activity that sparked a fascinating dialogue about our personal definitions of creativity.
Russ Schoen facilitated a fun & fabulous afternoon of Improvation that introduced improvisation techniques to use in the classroom or workplace to create supportive environments where creative thinking can thrive.
John Cabra & Juliana Sanchez Trujillo led a workshop on how creative collaborations can be fostered through Lego Serious Play– one of the highlights for me was finding Russ’ Lego twin!
Clara Kluk gave a fascinating insight into the creative lives of Miro & Picasso using their artworks to examine creative leadership thinking skills & unleashing the participants’ latent artistic skills by inviting us to create a collage inspired by the session.
