“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory”

Everyone has their own take on the process of creativity, but when the rubber meets the road, there’s a bunch of stuff that just works. This workshop is devoted to the introduction and practice of a large collection of hard-won and battle-tested creativity tactics. We’ll pitch you challenge after challenge in fields ranging from architecture to psychology to engineering. Each will be attacked with a particular tactic and designed to show its powers off.All these tricks and tactics share a common root and collectively, they form a powerful creativity platform relentlessly used by such fakers as Picasso and Shakespeare.
