We hope you’ve spent such a fun and intense weekend as us. All the trourist team has taken part in the creativity workshop promoted by iNNoVaNDiS and organised by Funky Projects.
iNNoVaNDiS is a program leaded by the University of Deusto which is promoting an entrepreneurship and innovative approach among the students. All of us were part of the second generation of iNNoVaNDiS and trourist came up from the program. Although we are done done with university, we still are involved and keep a good relationship with the responsibles of iNNoVaNDiS. Two years ago we took part in the first workshop organized and this year we have been invited as if we were students.
Funky Projects has designed the workshop with the following objectives: to generate a critic attitude around creativity and innovation, to create an opinion in an experimental way (reflection-in-action) and to highlight the self expression of the participants. With that purpose we took part in different activities that caused a reflection. We prepared cocktails, visited the museum of History of Zarautz, learnt to do kickboxing and designed activities that generated interactions with the inhabitants from Zarautz inspired by Improve Everywhere.
The most important conclusions of the workshop have been:
- Don’t wait till it happens, but create the moment yourself.
- Combine action and reflection.
- Kill the devil’s advocate.
- Question all around you.
- Creation doesn’t exist without fun.
In two words, it has been a very intense and fun weekend and it’s been a great opportunity to meet the new innovandis students.
Thanks to all for the great weekend!!!
