BOOKMARKED is an irregular gathering to explore selected readings that amplifies our imagination and widens our perspectives through discussions.

THE BOOK CLUB

The gym’s book club - BOOKMARKED - is running down in irregular intervals. We decide for a book and meet up to discuss it during several (mostly weekly) meetings throughout a month.

The books we select are meant to foster imagination and/or support us with our creative process. Through discussion we widen our perspective and learn new points of view.

The book clubs are moderated by us and designed to trigger inspiring discussions.

 

THE BOOK

Yuval Noah Harari - 21 lessons for the 21st century

Harari.jpeg

“In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power. Censorship works not by blocking the flow of information, but rather by flooding people with disinformation and distractions. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century cuts through these muddy waters and confronts some of the most urgent questions on today’s global agenda.” - Yuval Noah Harari.

 

THE READING SCHEDULE

We will meet at 4 Thursdays throughout November to discuss one or two parts of the book. Beforehand we will send out questions for reflections that we might cover during the meet-ups.

THU, 8th November - Part 1 and Welcome

THU, 15th November - Part 2

THU, 22nd November - Part 3 & Part 4

THU, 29th November - Part 5 and Wrap-up

The Game of Creativity Championship

 
Banner@2x.png

Wait, what? There is a Creativity Championship? Kind of and it's certainly not an official sports - yet. The idea is simple: we'll show you a nice ideation method and combine it with a small competition. That way, you'll practice a neat skill, while ideating against other community members. 

This is another Creativity Gym premier. For this community session we'll use our friend's Matt brand new designed card game: The Game of Creativity. After a short training and briefing, you'll compete against others over various prompts. A unbiased jury, will vote for the winning ideas each round until we have a champion. 

Who should join:

  • people who are looking for a new ideation skill

  • people who would like to train creative thinking styles in general

  • people who want to enjoy an after work drink while exercising their creative muscle

  • people who want to win the very first TGOC-Championship

The only thing you need is your favorite pen.

Join us to meet like minded people, train your creative thinking skills, ask for advice or feedback on anything and everything, learn what the Creativity Gym is all about, or just have a drink with us!

Creativity Workout << >> Yoga Lawn

Creativity Workout << >> Yoga Lawn

In this format co-hosted by Social Entrepreneurship Forum (SEF) and Creativity Gym we mix up a yoga session with a creativity workout. In this intersection, we will explore creativity and mindfulness and complete a yoga praxis. You go home with the positive feeling of an energising workout for body and mind and with new inspiration for your creative life. 

Regular creativity workouts are the core of the Creativity Gym and we love to partner up with inspiring organisations. The session is split in 4 parts:

  1. Join us for the intro round 20 minutes prior to the workout (optional).
  2. First, you'll get some warm-up exercises around the topic of creativity (15 minutes).
  3. Next, you'll go through a complete yoga practice led by Josefine, who runs SEF and is giving weekly yoga workshops (45 minutes). Eventually, we invite you the final
  4. creativity exercise and reflect upon your experience (30 minutes / stay for networking afterwards).

Who should join:

  • curious persons who want to reflect on their creative lifestyle
  • yogis that are open for new insights
  • those looking for an energising after work format to exercise body and mind
  • people members interested in SEF, Creativity Gym or both communities
  • all that want to get to meet likeminded creative, curious and mindful people

Important: we open doors 20 minutes before the workout. Join us early, introduce yourself and find out who else is here. To avoid disturbance during the workout, you cannot participate once the workout has started. 

The exercises will also give us plenty of topics to chat about while we enjoy an after-work drink. It will be relaxed and easygoing, much fun, yet you’ll train creativity, your downward facing dogs & your mind. The only thing you need is your favorite pen, your yoga mat and comfy / sporty cloths.

Creative Problem Solving
Mar

6:30 PM18:30

Creative Problem Solving

One way to think about creativity is the ability to solve problems in a novel and appropriate way. However, it is not always easy to generate novel and desirable ideas. The challenge is that thinking creatively requires you to change how you think. And this shift needs to be trained. And this is exactly what will happen in this community workout.

This workout is one of our 'classics'. We'll focus on creative problem solving by tackling little challenges. Each challenge will force you to leave conventional thinking paths. After this workout you will feel more comfortable to use creative thinking styles in your job, in your hobby or in your everyday life. 

Who should join:

  • people who try to solve difficult problems in their job or privatley
  • people who would like to train creative thinking styles
  • people who want to enjoy an after work drink while exercising their creative muscle
  • people interested in creativity, design and innovation

Tip: we use the first 10 minutes to introduce ourselves to each other. Come on time so that you don't miss who else is there. 

The exercises will also give us plenty of topics to chat about while we enjoy an after-work drink. It will be relaxed and easygoing, much fun, yet you’ll train creativity, design skills & idea muscle. The only thing you need is your favorite pen.

Join us to meet like minded people, train your design skills, ask for advice or feedback on anything and everything, learn what the Creativity Gym is all about, or just have a drink with us!
