Path to Creativity: Exploration with Symbol Cards

Teachers

  • April 27, 2021 / 19:00

In this workshop, teachers from various disciplines are invited to explore tips and tricks to enhance their creativity, an innate aspect of human nature that shapes how we perceive the world. Intuition and images are the ideal forms of communication when the mind and language are not enough to convey ideas. In the workshop, we discover new and creative narratives that emerge when the mind is emptied and language is removed. We take inspiration from the exhibited works to draw images that represent our own issues, using symbols of our own design. We seek inspiration and creativity by exploring the connections, similarities and previously unknown relationships between the symbol cards we will design.
