NEW DATE: Redesign Your Workplace: Space and Creativity
December 14, 2019 · 1:00 pm—4:00 pm · Arts Council of Princeton
The spaces where we work, play, rest, and socialize might affect our thinking more than we realize. Which ideas strike kids in fenced, concrete yards, as opposed to expansive, grassy playgrounds? What about employees in gray cubicles versus colorful clusters? Incorporating groundbreaking psychology and neuroscience, this interactive exhibit will encourage participants to arrange three scenes—an office, a classroom, and a domestic room—with a view to creativity. Moving the furniture, participants will experience the relationship between their physical surroundings and mental states, while discovering potential ways to improve their own offices, classrooms, and homes. Audience members will access their “creative process” with a number of techniques, such as “How Might We?” questions and exercises to increase Divergent Thinking. Creativity will emerge as accessible to not only children and geniuses, but anyone.
Register for a slot from 1:00 – 2:00 pm, 2:00 – 3:00 pm, or 3:00 – 4:00 pm here to guarantee your spot.
