Bust through creative blocks and ignite innovative problem-solving with this toolkit for creative experimentation featuring 50 prompt cards. What if finding inspiration was merely a matter of gazing through a different lens or trying out a new tool? Kickstart Creativity is a deck of 50 cards--each with a creative exercise--designed to prompt unexpected ways of thinking. At the start of a personal challenge or work project, draw three cards from this deck and reflect on how the spread relates to your current situation. Choose an action card to learn a new skill, a perspective card to see the world in a novel way, and an intention card to influence more meaningful and mindful choices. Kickstart Creativity can be used by individuals or by groups of teachers, students, co-workers, and other collaborators as an antidote to creative block. With insights from trailblazing rule-breakers and cultural philosophies from bygone eras, Kickstart Creativity will shift your attention away from the pressure of productivity and toward the path to creative freedom.
