We’ve been coined the “look down” generation. Where once we looked out at the world and each other – the view in front of us being our primary source of information – today we frequently lower our gaze to interact with our phone or tablet. Research has shown the power of walking and movement in fostering creative thought, improving creative thought by up to 60%.

"With an always-on attitude to work it can be difficult to clear your head and drift in your own thoughts. The Creative Safari was extremely useful on facilitating a freeing of the mind – which in turn resulted in a fruitful session, full of ideas. It really helped me let go of the “nay-saying” thoughts around my brief, it gave me the clarity I needed to take a fresh approach, resulting in some great new ideas.”
What You Will Learn
You’ll bring your challenge with you. Use your city and surroundings as your personal creative treasure trove and find answers. This typically takes the form of a 90-minute walk where you’ll deliberately get lost and into a state of flow and then work to unravel your findings to answer your problem. Be prepared to tolerate ambiguity and trust your unconscious mind. This may be an uncomfortable experience for those who need to have instant answers – unless you’re willing to let go a little!
The Creative Safari time can vary. If you have time to meander, or want to undertake a team bonding experience you can take 3 hours (90 mins walking, 90 mins working together, sharing and talking about what we’ve found over a coffee or a pint (depending on your mood and the yard arm). We can also do it in a shorter timeframe, of around an hour to 90 minutes.
