David j. was accepted onto the Harnessing Creativity Creative Labs. The response to the Call for Participants was fantastic in terms of interest in the Creative Labs collaborative process, range & experience of fields/disciplines, geographical spread. The Creative Labs are structured and designed to inspire participants to explore new pathways to creativity through brainstorming and collaborative workshop activity. Participants will bring all their knowledge and experience to the program. New ideas will be generated in the labs with emphasis given to the benefits of collaboration between creative businesses and between creative businesses and the wider local community/ businesses. Each lab will be made up of a group of ten participants and a facilitator.
There is one slight problem in the fact that David j. will be away for two of the meetings, so even though he wishes to be a part of the programme a final decision on whether he can participate is still in the balance.
