Every day we play with a creative challenge. What we create doesn’t have to be grand. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We aim to stretch our creative muscles, be playful, and have fun! Every day we take a little journey with some unexpected turns. That’s the beauty of creativity. If you just let it, it will fill you with wonder. The Challenge Our creative challenge today is made of the following set. If you are familiar with the creomondi building blocks, use the set to explore, imagine, and create. Alternatively, read how we played with it for inspiration first. The Playground We Will Explore The Seed We Will Use in our Exploration Now, Let’s Create… Let’s Play For my exploration walk today, I took the Yo-Yo Seed. Now, I have to be honest: I completely forgot about it during my walk. I took plenty of photos of interesting things and didn’t consider the Seed at all. Until I came back home and explored the images and found this one. Well, I didn’t really see it like this. I had to turn this lollipop street-art upside down to make the yo-yo pop out of it, which is a good reminder … Read More

To find inspiration, we will look around us, wherever we are and wherever we go, and we will use the Casino Seed as something to help us focus and discover surprising things. I went jogging with the Seed in mind. On my way, I saw a young woman, all dressed up for a workout. If it wasn’t for … Read More

Our experiences provide infinite ingredients for Creativity. And so, we will start with an experience, and use what we see, sense, and feel as inspiration for our creation. The Experience we will use today is saying “good morning” to someone you don’t know. As you will see in a minute, you can take this straight forward (although not necessarily easy) experience in different directions. But even more important is to notice how it makes you (and the other participant in this engagement) feel. If … Read More

Before you dismiss that as an unfeasible idea due to scheduling constraints, consider this: you don’t have to physically visit a museum to explore one. There are numerous resources online that can help you explore standalone artworks or an artist’s body of work. The best way to play in the Museum Playground if you can’t visit a physical museum, though, is to take … Read More

On the one hand, they should obviously have a plot, even if a very condensed one. On the other hand, they leave plenty of room for interpretation, and every reader can complete the missing details using their own imagination. Add to that the rigorous constraint — their length should be exactly 50 words — and you get a cool creative challenge. Today we are going to write a 50-Word … Read More

GOOD EVENING ROMFORD

“Cover band? What do you want to be in a cover band for?” He tried to explain it dozens of times to his father. He just didn’t get it. When their van entered the empty driveway of the Brookside Theatre, he tried to explain it to himself. It was a small gig in a small town. It was more of a community center than a theatre. The hall was so small you could walk from door to stage in ten steps. 120 foldable chairs were arranged in ten rows. The ceiling was so low he could almost touch it. And the soundman came with the place. Backstage, which was more of a side-stage, he held a small mirror in his left hand, and carefully put on his makeup with the right. He heard the people starting to fill the small hall and dragging their chairs. In ten minutes his band will take the stage. When the audience is big enough, there’s energy in the air no-one can (or wants to) resist. With 120 people in a community center, you just cannot know how it will be like. These people are here because of their memories. He and his friends are … Read More

one thing I observed   It’s common to find bicycles around the city. People are locking their bikes to practically anything. It is also not rare to find bicycle parts locked, like a wheel or the frame of the bikes. But this was the first time I saw not one but two wheels, placed one on top of the other, chained to a strange-looking wooden structure. They looked like they were there for a while, which made me wonder, why locking the two wheels (which are easier to carry than the frame) and where exactly is the frame. And this is when I started to imagine… one thing I thought of   Maybe these wheels are not part of a bicycle after all. Perhaps they are part of two unicycles. Imagine a strange couple riding on two unicycles, and then dismantling their wheels and locking them when they arrive at their destination. Are they acrobats? Maybe they leave in the smallest apartment and could not store two bicycles? Or perhaps they could not afford to buy two regular bikes? The things we observe make us wonder. And the combination of exploring something and wondering about it can lead to imagining … Read More
