A crash course in changing the world.
So I know one needs both logic and creativity.
The way I see it there is enough logic and knowledge floating around the workspaces of today.
So I want to focus on a way of increasing creativity in adults much to the creativity levels children posess. However; one difference should ultimately exist between the creativity that the adults will posess in relation to a children's creativity: the naive quality.
But in order for the adults to unleash their hidden, creative sides they must push past the boundaries they have established within their minds to become more
in their thinking.
Ultimately I wish to change the wh*** way adults think. Their thought patterns would not lead them to absurdity of course, or their ideas would be straight-out rejected within society. However, I believe that in order for someone to make a change, they have to do something no one else has done, right? Well nothing much will change if millions of people every day follow the same path, too scared or worried to leave the established road and make their own.
I know I talk about roads a lot. Sorry ^^

From my other post I have picked out your ideas that appeal to me the most.
- A multiplayer creative space with goal oriented solutions could make people cooperate to achieve a goal through artistic means. - Shane M. Wheeler
- Do something with schools to encourage creativity, it could change the entire education system. - Nicolas Dkystra
- Childrens library for all ages - Katherine Morrison
Don't worry, Katherine, I promise I won't steal your idea. However, it reminded me of an idea I had a while ago that must have been lost and forgotten in some part of my brain. Basically, my idea would be more than a room, or an art installation. It would be on a grand scale - the bigger the better.
My idea would be a wh*** venue aimed at increasing adult creativity - although children would be welcome too of course. ^^
What would be in this venue, though?
Well I was playing around with a few ideas. When Nicolas mentioned that 'children have creativity, and somewhere along the course of life we loose it'; it got me thinking. What would happen if we reminded adults of their childhood? Would part of their brain come out of the shadows, remind them how much of a creative person they were?
The venue could be set up in three parts:
Part 1: Activities, installations and performances aimed at helping adults remember childhood.
Part 2: Activities, installations and performances encouraging creativity.
Part 3: Activities of installations incorporating the use of both creativity and logic.
So yeah, this is where my thoughts are taking me.
So tell me about your childhood, any significant memories, smells, tastes, ANYTHING. I want to hear it.
Also, any ideas about reminding yourself or someone else about your childhood would be great.
As you may have noticed, I would like to focus on part 1.
