Introduction

Do you want to find new ways to generate creative ideas and solve problems?

This intensive, workshop-based unit takes its cues directly from research into the creative process. Its aim is to introduce participants to core factors that contribute to innovation:

  • The need for physicality, play and movement
  • The importance of experiment, especially with different points of view, as a way of enhancing understanding and empathy
  • How using novel creative approaches, including collaboration, helps us generate creative ideas and tackle problems
  • The value of other disciplines and genres, and how creativity can become a way of managing diverse tasks

The program will use creative writing techniques as a basis for meeting the challenges of becoming more innovative. Previous experience of creative writing isn’t necessary – this is a chance to be creative in new ways that help you transfer processes across different aspects of life and work.
