Our impulse to play is ancient. Its origins mean we have the freedom to take a risk or try something new. Deep play surrounds us through a form of abandon, surrender and engagement. So how does deep play help us become more creative and innovative and what’s its role in events?

Learner Outcomes:

  • Discuss the critical elements of play and how to use them in your event.
  • Practice the deep play process of Einstein’s combinatory play that creates genius.
  • Explore how to use play as an effective programming element that stimulates creativity, innovation, inspiration and problem solving.
