John Cleese on Creativity - AIN this is what we do!

Fantastic video by John Cleese on creativity, the vital role of humour, open versus closed mode, serious <> solemn, the importance of play, of experimentation - and a wonderful rant at the end of how to kill creativity. LOVE it!

this is so brilliant! "it´s much easier to do the urgent things we know how to do, but which are unimportant, than the important things we don´t know how to start with!" and creativity needs Time and TIME!!!

AIN External Website

We have created and launched a new website to promote Applied Improvisation to prospective clients -

As you know, we already have a great website for talking to each other: this new site is for us to talk to the world, letting people know the value that AI practitioners can bring to organisations and communities, as trainers, facilitators and inspirers of creativity. It also has a sensational new logo, thanks to our very own Bård Brænde.

Please take a look here, let us know how to improve the site, and recommend it to any potential clients you can think of.  If you’d like to be listed on the site as a Practitioner, then check out the sign-up process on the discussion linked to this email here.

Support the AIN!
