Why do I love utilizing creative engagement so much? Well, let’s be honest, I don’t think I really know any other way to engage participants! But seriously, what I truly love about it is that it creates an “active workspace dedicated to real-time creative activity to energize observers and encourage a different take on problem-solving.” (Lynda Barry)
For participants, creative engagement encourages “being present and seeing what’s there.” (Marilyn Frasca)
And I love that it equalizes everyone in the room and fosters safe dialogue and dynamic brainstorming.
“What happens when students from different disciplines get together to work intensely using both drawing and writing to bring about the unthinkable?” – Lynda Barry
