Have been at Crea. It is a conference I kept hearing about and bumping into in the last half of year alongside my inquiries about creativity, innovation, divergent thinking etc... It paid off, both at a personal and at a professional level. Qual research conferences I had been at before are usually "not your typical corporate conferences", yet, being in a conference that is about much more than just business was very rewarding. So, what did I do at Crea?
I put some order in my disorderly knowledge about creativity and creative processes. I got the chance to practice what I used to only preach (in terms of creative behaviors). I spent more time barefoot than with my shoes on. I met a bunch of really inspirational, free spirited, generous people. I got in touch with myself by moving, drawing, dancing, walking the labyrinth, "buttoning and unbuttoning with people ;)", laughing... I played. I had fun. I cried when it was over.
