Workshop: “Escape the Grid: A Creativity Workshop with Sépànd Danesh and Johannes Jaeger”

Monday, September 23, room 1.17

Open working space: 3:00 – 5:00 pm

Workshop: 5:00 - 8:00 pm

What is creativity? Creativity does not follow rules. It breaks and transcends them. It generates its own laws. Can creativity be taught? We are not sure. Can your creativity be liberated? Absolutely! Unleashing a creative process requires the right kind of ambient conditions, and a certain relaxed state of mind. Today’s high-pressure economic, social and academic environments focus on maximizing short-term productivity. This makes it increasingly difficult to experience the intermittent states of contemplative mind-wandering that are necessary for the dynamic interplay between our conscious and unconscious selves, an interplay that forms the basis for creative discovery.

This workshop uses a simple exercise in drawing to provide a hands-on experience of your own creative process.

You will be guided on your explorative conceptual journey by the French-Iranian young artist, Sépànd Danesh, and scientist/philosopher, Johannes Jaeger, both of whom have extensive experience with this kind of project. Join us for an interesting workshop and unleash your creativity!

RSVP until September 19 to office.director@webster.ac.at
