The Trash Heap of Infinite Possibility
Many artists, designers and creatives believe in the power of open-ended, purely playful creative processes, but we are often far more likely to recommend them to others than do them ourselves; our goal-oriented and deadline driven work (along with the rest of life) often gets in the way.
In this 2 hour workshop, Amy Walsh (Founder of the Bureau of Tactical Imagination) and Andy Goodman (Interim Deputy Director of Central Contemporary Arts) will share their favorite creative prompts from their own practices and with clients and students, and discuss ways to make using them a habit. Then they’ll guide you through a number of easy, generative prompts using both visual means and physical movement.
Come replenish your creative well and get inspired. Leave with new assignments to take into your studio, design practice, company or organization.
