Build Your Creative Muscle

Date & time

This event is free


Student Success Centre







You are working from home. You are staring at the same four walls. It has been 11 months. What would you do to add new light to your day? Make a list/draw pictures/write a poem/sing a song to answer this question as your current self and as a 5-year old you.

This is an example of a daily opportunity where we might experiment off the beaten path. Yes, risk-taking is part of the experience and so is bringing creativity to the forefront. In fact, LinkedIn’s “The Learning Blog” mentioned creativity as the second most-in-demand skill for the workplace. This workshop is a dynamic mix of experiential exercises, group work and information sharing to highlight the value of creativity and ways to have fun while building this C-muscle. As an added bonus, if you have a topic that could use the brainpower of fellow students, bring it to the workshop. There will be a dedicated portion of time for collaborative brainstorming.
