Workshop: Exploring the Dark Side of Creativity

By Jeffrey Baumgartner

Brussels: 9 September 2015

Creativity is not always pretty. Research has also shown that it has a dark side that includes links to mental illness, reduced humility and dishonesty. (Read more here)

In this workshop, we will explore the dark side of creativity and, especially, its relationship with lies, deception and other forms of dishonesty. We'll do this in a handful of individual and group exercises as well as a role-play activities.

The aim of the workshop is not to turn you into a better liar, but rather to help you learn to use the link between creativity and dishonesty in order to be more creative in your thinking, story telling and approach to solving problems.
