Do timelines kill creativity?

a wonderful video send by a colleague after we have held our first creativity and innovation workshop at his university. I truly love the message, but I wonder: Would the results be even better if there is no timeline? I have my doubts. Nevertheless please take your time and watch a brilliant story.

Little boxes

was a song in 60s the by Malvina Reynolds. I did know until my colleague started humming the song while we were working on a new course on creativity and innovation patterns. I loved it so much, since I always declare “we need to get rid of the box”, that I choose we will use as an opening theme of the course itself.

You´ll find the lyrics here to sing along with us 🙂

response of a dying city

Nachdem Grand Rapids auf der Liste der “dying cities” (Newsweek) erschienen war, drehten 5000 Einwohner der Stadt dieses Video als Antwort darauf.

Ich find das echt beeindruckend und berührend 🙂

 

“”The Grand Rapids LipDub Video was filmed May 22nd, with 5,000 people, and involved a major shutdown of downtown Grand Rapids, which was filled with marching bands, parades, weddings, motorcades, bridges on fire, and helicopter take offs. It is the largest and longest LipDub video, to date. This video was created as an official response to the Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a “dying city.” We disagreed strongly, and wanted to create a video that encompasses the passion and energy we all feel is growing exponentially, in this great city. We felt Don McLean’s “American Pie,” a song about death, was in the end, triumphant and filled to the brim with life and hope.” – Rob Bliss, Director & Executive Producer
