Share the Toys in Our Attic
to advance in your personal and professional creative development

4 x 75 minutes  •  8:30am daily

We love sharing our toys! Each morning we’ll help you learn and practice a set of playful actions, modified or invented by Clara and Sylvain, that can boost collaboration, enhance your creative competence, and keep you functioning at the top of your game.

Our toys will inspire you and connect you with your capacity to create at home and on the job. They’ll equip you to challenge yourself and articulate insights on how to become a more creative person, citizen, parent, problem solver, and human being.

If you teach, lead, facilitate, or participate in problem-solving sessions of any kind, these tools and strategies will enrich your toolbox and can become the starting point of your own creations!

We really do love sharing our toys. Join us!
