The collective creative process begins with curiosity, appreciation and mindfulness. The casual undermining of blockages encourages exchanging views openly and leads to unknown territory.
2. Creative Research
Participants explore the possible interpretations of a situation and during the intensive analysis develop a sense for viable solutions that integrate different perspectives.
3. Single-minded Play
First ideas are collected and inventively explored. The play with metaphors, contrasts and extreme scenarios changes thinking and opens a space of unforeseen possibilities.
The participants translate approaches into stories, pictures and objects. They condense ideas in artistic media and sharpen the details step by step, so that a concept develops organically.
The solution is subjected to critical external reviews, refined or completely modified, and takes shape as a work. The collective sculpture or graphic tells others an imaginative story, sparking the innovation.
A workshop lasts two to five days and can be held with up to 24 participants. The topic determines the scope and the concrete contents.
