November 2020 Workshop: Creativity at Work

Join us Thursday, November 5th from 9:00am to 10:30am as Noah Scalin, an artist and author, empowers us to add to our volunteer professional toolkits.

More on Creativity at Work

This is not about getting out of a box or coming up with a Big Idea. It’s about being able to consistently find potential in any situation. To do this you need to have a toolbox you can rely on.

In this session, we will learn The Big SevenTM, a set of strategies that anyone can learn to apply. This develops confidence in those who don’t feel creative and helps those who already identify as creative to harness and level-up their capabilities.

Participants will apply a creative practice model to explore these strategies to ensure that insights from many perspectives can be documented and shared during the process.

Artist/Author Noah Scalin will share the unusual story of how he completely overturned his own working practices to develop a new way of sustaining innovation in his work and life.

He explains The Big Seven practices that he uses to continually learn and grow in his work, sharing examples of how they can be applied in any context that requires innovative approaches.

Participants will immediately put these concepts into practice themselves with a Creative Sprint ® challenge.

This event is free for GRAVA members and $5 for non-members.

Please register for this workshop by noon Wednesday, November 4th.

About the Presenter

Noah Scalin founded his own business in 2001 with the idea that he could make a living doing what he enjoyed and effect positive change in the world. What he didn’t know at the time was that a small act of creativity would dramatically transform his life and work, winning him a Webby award and landing him on the Martha Stewart show. Since then, he has traveled the world bringing his message of creative practice to everyone from incarcerated teenagers to Fortune 500 executives. His awe-inspiring work has been featured in Fast Company, USA Today and the New York Times. He has authored six books on design and creativity and exhibited at museums and galleries internationally. He is the first artist-in-residence at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business where he was retained as adjunct faculty.
