The creative retreat

We invited the participants to stay another two days in order to develop their ideas further in whatever form they considered as appropriate. It was completely left open if this happens in groups or individually. The idea of the two creative retreat days was to provide an open space for taking the realisations into the next level. The participants were encouraged to think about how the products of the realization phase, or aspects of them, could be presented and communicated to people outside the workshop. On the first day of this phase, the participants gathered to talk about what they individually found intriguing about the realisation and what they wanted to continue work on.

The process was informal and the participants worked on their own projects. Two times a day everyone gathered together to share and exchange ideas, thoughts, and frustrations during the process.

Short statements from the gatherings and visual diary on the process

  • I need to start drawing! I need to reflect! I need to find my own language and skills! I need to go back to my self.
  • We are having a break down in the creative process and having some technical problems, but we want to figure them out ourselves. It is part of the creativeness. When I start writing, putting it into words, it grows – I try to find my way through it.
  • Linking ideas, common visions and individual skills
