Creativity and the "Dumb Question"
March 14 at 6:30pm - Emy Frentz Arts Guild
Sometimes the way to get the most interesting ideas is by learning how to ask the most interesting questions. So often we stop our brain too soon from doing the work it really wants to do. We’re afraid to ask the “dumb question.”
Theatre professor, playwright and performer, Peter Bloedel will discuss the importance of asking impractical questions, how to use these questions as creative stepping-stones, and how to take play seriously. Sometimes the “dumb question” can open up a whole undiscovered universe.
