Mindcamp Choice Session Description

Creative — On Purpose
Essential strategies for going beyond the occasional Aha to true creative power
(Katie Tagye, Dan Bigonesse)
Mind U session
Maximum Participants: 40

What creative choices do you make? How do you show up as a creative individual? Creativity is more than the spark of an idea or an “a-ha” moment. It’s a series of purposeful choices we can make.

In this program, we’ll use Mel Rhodes’s four P’s framework of creativity as the foundation for examining deliberate choices. With an emphasis on who we are as creative individuals, we’ll use the four P structure to explore our creative mindsets, personal approaches to creating, how we determine when we’ve met our creative goals, and the ways in which we design our environments to motivate and sustain our creativity.

Join us in this journey of finding connections between Rhodes’s framework and our different experiences of creativity.
