Ever gotten stuck in a brainstorming session? Ever had egos get in the way of teamwork? Taking lessons from improvisational theatre, this workshop will teach you the basics of support, teamwork, and the generative flow of ideas that will make you a better designer. We’ll start with the basics of “yes and” and supporting each other and address how to apply these principles in real world situations. This workshop is fun and interactive, so come ready to try something new!
