We find inspiration in the world around us and the stimuli we encounter. By engaging in new, varied and unconventional stimuli, we broaden our chances of being inspired and generating new arts entrepreneurship ideas.
How to Play:
- Engage in activities that you would normally not engage in: read different books, websites, articles.
- Go home a different way from which you normally go and stay present in your consciousness to all that is around you.
- See with the eyes of a child–a child sees things for the first time.
- Write stream of consciousness in a journal, not censoring yourself, but keeping open to the urges that motivate you.
- Play with ideas as you would an toy that you love.
The goal of this exercise is to gather new stimuli and to generate new inspiration from which to create.
If you would like to use these games in your own classroom, please do! If you do, let me know how how it goes and if you have suggestions for modifying a game.
