Workshop: Creativity 4 Conflict Resolution

Brussels: 22 September 2021

Can creativity help us resolve human conflicts?

Did you know that we can train people to learn abilities such as empathy, non-violent communication, and active listening during collective intelligence dynamics? You can then imagine how deeply connected co-creation processes are to conflict resolution possibilities. 

During this workshop we will highlight creativity and its processes as a conflict mediator. We will discover some strategies designers use to solve creative challenges (aka Design thinking*) as an opportunity to enable a collaborative context to generate win-win solutions.

Lets' unveil the power together!

During this workshop, you will...

  • Learn about the (some) existing exit gates for conflict resolution.
  • Practice empathy, non-violent communication and active listening.
  • Workout your creativity around a concrete (and hypothetic) conflict case and solve it as a creative challenge.

This approach combines self-knowledge, teamwork capabilities and creative thinking to imagine new ways to respond to old questions, such as solving human conflicts. 

Are you curious? Let's talk about it!

* + Creative Problem Solving and Co-creation.

About Ana Simar

Half Belgian, half Colombian, Ana counts with a multicultural vision on global concerns such as social inclusion, sustainable development and local entrepreneurship. Ana always ensures a refreshing talk by placing the human being in the middle of the action.

Ana facilitates workshops on the creative process, assuming it as a -- multi-step whole -- that shouldn’t be dissociated. She designs playful tools and methods to adapt the approach to the particularities of each context. Using her communication, design, and event management background, she plans and coordinates every detail of every workshop session for a smooth and natural run.

She created Happytivity in 2016 to share the power of creativity with “non-familiarized communities”. -
