A space to create
For adults • 90 minutes
Maximum Participants: 20
Saturday 1:30pm • Daniel Centre
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)
We invite you to enter The Thinkubator…where you will have the opportunity to slow down and settle into a multidisciplinary arts experience that will awaken your senses and enable your creativity. Come experience the space inBEATween.
The session will begin with a brief lesson on how to better invoke your own powers of incubation as well as providing a quick lesson to drumming and percussion. Following the setup, you’ll have uninterrupted time and space to incubate and create as you wish, either individually or as a collective.
You are sure to emerge from The Thinkubator with new ideas, fresh perspectives and useful incubation techniques that you can apply to everyday life.
(Art and drawing supplies and paper will be made available however participants are encouraged to bring along their own if they’d like)
The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session
- An understanding of the role of incubation in the creative process and how it can be cultivated in your own life
- To recharge in an atmosphere of gentle contemplation and creative expression
- Time and space that is deliberately designed for uninterrupted incubation
