Please join us for a fun-filled evening with Patricia Colley, UX extraordinaire, and improv/gaming doyenne. Here's what she's got in store for us...
Fun and games with a purpose 
The damp chill of winter may be upon us, but why hibernate in a cave when you can come out for a night of impromptu creativity games? Brought to you by Patricia Colley, problem-solver, disruptive collaborator, game-master and improviser extraordinaire! 
UX types are very clever, and we're great at thinking problems through, but sometimes our intellect hits a wall, and we need a creative jolt. To make imaginative leaps, we have to calm the inner critic, focus on the moment, and step intuitively into the unknown. Getting your whole brain and body engaged in the here & now of creative flow - that's where the magic happens. 
How do we do that? Let's find out together! 
We'll do some group exercises to shake out the cobwebs and get your juices going. We'll be up on our feet and doing stuff about half the time, talking and moving and maybe a little drawing, too. We'll tell stories and reflect in between. We'll share ideas on how to keep creativity going in practice, when time is short, inspiration is low, and pressure is high. We may even learn a little something about collaboration along the way.   
You'll come out of it re-energized, or your money back!
