Presentation

Overview

Recipes for collaboration and creativity

Have you ever seen an amazing project and wondered, “Wow! How did they do that?!” Beyond what we define as “creative process” lies the intangible craft of relationship building. How people behave together, what motivates their creativity, the kind of frameworks and interactions that surround them – these (often overlooked) elements are the building blocks of killer creative ideas.

In this talk, Emilie Baltz will share insights on how specific relationship structures, environments, and people affected her own creativity. How did these factors lead to the creation of the world’s first Cotton Candy Theremin, a redesign of the Museum of Sex, a dinner in a nuclear reactor 25 meters under Stockholm, and so many other unique and creative projects? Emilie will share all that and more.
