Creativity in the Moment

Join neuroscientist Dr Shama Rahman and award-winning theatre company, “Jugular: Joining The Head and The Heart”, as we demystify the science of creativity and how we can access it for ourselves through simple storytelling theatre techniques. Learn about the main stages of the creative process by getting creativity off the page, on its feet and relating it to your daily life. Expect lateral thinking, problem-solving, improvisation, and a lot of fun! Using theatre-based activities, participants will navigate through different types of creativity, relating it to the science behind it and their own daily routine or artistic practice.
