2017 Session Description

Take your ideas a few steps further

For adults • 90 minutes
Category: Body/Mind
Thursday 10:45am • Centennial 12
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)

In creativity, we speak of fluidity, flexibility and flow. And openness. What if certain types of physical movements could influence our (creative) state of mind? That’s precisely what several studies are showing. In this session, we will try out different moves and consider how they feel internally as we strive to embody the qualities of a creative mindset. As we move through the process, we may just get a few surprises, as mind and body join together to fuel and boost our creativity. Let’s see where our bodies take our ideas and where our ideas take us! Rest assured, no acrobatic or dance skills required.

The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session

  • Have fun experimenting with movement and loosening up
  • Experience the effect of movement on the ideation process
  • Move from brainstorm to bodystorm!
