    Program Overview

    • The Creativity Workshop in Dublin will help you become more creative in your personal and professional life; the creativity training we provide uses the tools of creative writing, memoir, art, photography, storytelling, mapmaking, and guided visualization.
    • Participants come from many different countries and professional fields, including business, education, psychology, the sciences, and the arts.
    • Many people who have taken the Workshop say that it was a transformative experience, helping them to write their books, start new companies, complete long overdue projects, transition to rewarding retirements, and change the way they look at life.



    Program Details

    • The Creativity Workshop in Dublin meets for 5 days, 3 1/2 hours per day (from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM). You will have the rest of the time free to sightsee.
    • Class will be held at Hotel Fitzwilliam in central Dublin, close to Trinity College and Grafton Street, which is known for its fashionable shops and street performers called “buskers.”



    Why Dublin?

    Dublin

    • Rich with culture, Dublin is famous for its writers, such as James Joyce, W.B. Yeats, and Samuel Beckett, as well as for its traditional Irish music, theatre, and pubs.
    • This vibrant city of green parks, vast museums, and historic landmarks is wonderfully compact, conducive to strolling around and relaxing. The fine Georgian area, as typified by Merrion and Fitzwilliam Squares, is only a short walk from the famous St. Stephen’s Green.
    • Just half an hour from the city center, you will find lush mountains, stately homes and gardens, sandy beaches, and charming fishing villages.
    • At night, the city comes alive with pubs and trendy cafe bars along the cobblestone streets of the area called Temple Bar.
    • The techniques we explore in this creativity course will heighten your appreciation of Dublin and its surroundings, while the sounds and sights of this beautiful city will help spark your creative work in class.



    What Will You Learn?

    The Creativity Workshop is an experiential workshop of doing and experimenting. Our exercises and instructors’ talks focus on helping you:

    • Learn practical techniques to stimulate your imagination and innovative thinking.
    • Explore the process of creativity, rather than simply focusing on the product.
    • Discover how to find inspiration in the world around you.
    • Get over creative blocks and the fear of failure.
