What: The Power of Creatuals workshop
When: 8th of April // from 2 - 6 pm
Create extraordinary stories
Ribbon-cutting at an opening, toasting the newlyweds with champagne, celebrating a new product with balloons, and rolling out the red carpet at a premier – all great tried and tested traditions. Now it’s time for something new.
This workshop gives a comprehensive introduction to Creatuals and gives you the opportunity to design your own creative ritual. As you work together with others and their own particular professional and life issues, a series of Creatuals will develop for you to take with you on your journey into the future.
CREATUALS = CREATIVE RITUALS
So what are Creatuals? Creatuals are both social events and works of art. They might be used to mark milestones like an official opening, the introduction of a theme or new product, the completion of a change process, a farewell, or an end. The aim is to transform such events into significant moments of power and beauty. They are tailor-made contemporary rituals, infused with personal input and collective creativity and developed around a particular theme or for a specific occasion within a personal or corporate context.
During this workshop you will observe and disrupt ingrained patterns and brands. Through a five-step model, each person will be motivated to use their individual talents in order to find new direction and collective innovation on a given issue or situation. And all together, you and the other participants will search for new perspectives and associated rituals.During this process, the participant’s mind is ‘twisted’ in such a way as to heighten their senses. The participant tries to recognize and interpret what’s going on, but is surprised by an unexpected (sometimes peculiar) sense of wonder which triggers new insights, energy and connection.
Meike Ziegler is the founder and the creator of the phenomenon Creatuals. She has created dozens, each one tailor-made, for numerous different situations both at home and abroad. As a child, she lived in an ever-changing world, from which she created her own, equally changing world. She was schooled in Florence, London and Utrecht. She went on to work in Amsterdam, London, Barcelona, New York and Berlin. She was born in London and moved to Australia for her father’s work as city planner. Another move to Egypt brought her in contact with children from all walks of life. She feasted her eyes on a colourful palette of people, clothing, cuisine and lifestyles. Her education at American schools introduced her to children of over 100 different nationalities.
WHAT DO PARTICIPANTS EXPERIENCE?
We try to bring all senses into play, to trigger and lend perspective. We look to touch and sometimes tease, to bring participants out of their comfort zones, into the simplicity and purity of things. This is what we call creative alchemy. Creatuals remind us of who we are and where we come from.
