The Art (& Play) of Creativity

A two day workshop brought to you by MakingSpace

 There is much talk…

…about creativity and innovation, but how do we do become creative and innovative in our behavior, in our practices and how do we stimulate and embody creativity and innovation in our work?

This two day workshop is a practical investigation into the inherent nature of creativity.

Through an exploration of innovation approaches and by engaging in direct forms of art-making, in an open, art-room environment, we will make, play, reflect on and search for the intrinsic nature of creativity and seek to gain an understanding of, and insight into, ‘the creative process’. 

This is a project rooted in ongoing research into the creative process, and its relationship to learning, problem-solving, organising, self-development and participation

Two day workshop: £120

Date: Thurs 2nd and Fri 3rd July 2009

Time: 10-6pm

Location: Eel Pie Island, Twickenham, London

About Lucy:
I work on the boundaries of art, design and social science. My projects include Audit (2002), published by Book Works; Pindices (2005), a collaboration with sociologist Andrew Barry shown in Making Things Public, curated by Latour and Weibel at ZKM Karlsruhe; and Rat Fair, a live event at Camden Arts Centre (2005) involving about 50 rats and 500 people. Having worked primarily in art and interaction design for several years, I am currently masquerading as a social scientist as the Clark Fellow in Design Leadership at Said Business School, University of Oxford where among other things I teach on the MBA. I think of my art work as creating bastardised methodologies, which in social science finds an intellectual home in Science and Technology Studies. More recently I've been researching the possibilities of design and art practices in organisational life, through writing and other forms of knowledge production. In 2008 I curated an interdisciplinary exhibition Imagining Business with Nina Wakeford and Alex Hodby.
