Stepping into our Creativity – It starts with us: Building ‘in-sight’ for organisational development.

Let’s strip back to our own innate creativity.
Reinforce our ability to be embodied and fully present to empathise and ‘make’ together.
To embrace and distil back to something vital.
To explore the dynamics of how we embody, build and manifest ideas.
 
Creativity is perceived and often used as embellishment or enhancement. We propose that distillation is more powerful than embellishment. Useful creativity is about experience and experiential practice. In our virtual world we become more distant and mistrusting of our own unique sensorial life. Our work as researchers and engagers is intrinsically linked to our ability to empathise. This is a sensorial and emotional quality that is about one’s own ability to be fully present and cognitive.
 
Using techniques drawn from performance and art, Martin Gent – artist and Director of Creativity at Spinach- will lead an experiential session that will invite us to re-engage with our own unique creativity. Exploring our ability to be comfortable with the ‘mess’ inherent in working creatively; to enjoy complexity; to release our tendency to want to control; to be embodied and confident to let things appear; to explore our ability to be fully present, playful and innovative.

The event will run 17:00-19:00 followed by a drinks reception.
