People do the coolest things . . .

I recently facilitated a creativity retreat for a local organization. We talked a little bit about what creativity is, and then everyone started in on collages. Only a few of the people in the room had made a collage in the past ten years - but look at what they did!


People are so creative . . . the people in this organization are constantly solving problems, but many of them don't see what they do as creative. Hopefully, this gave them another way of thinking about what they do.











There were close to 30 people in the workshop, and this is only a fraction of what they did! They got together in groups after making their collages, and then built stories using the images like pictures in a storyboard.

Wonderful work you are facilitating into being! Am not surprised that 'normal, everyday, folks' are able to access creativity under your watchful gaze. Keep up the great work!

How lucky these people were to have you as their facilitator and guide. And what a cool organization to arrange for such a class!
