EMPTY YOUR MIND TO FILL IT WITH CREATIVITY / DAY4 / LARP #CreativeMind

25 people, 5 groups, 1 mission:

Will the ‘Manifesto for creative minds’ be written in time?

Introduction To LARP

LARP (Live Action Role Play) is a role game where the participants physically act out their characters’ actions.

The first LARPs were run in the late 1970s and it spread internationally during the 1980s and has diversified into a wide variety of styles. Play may be very game-like or may be more concerned with dramatic or artistic expression. Events can also be designed to achieve educational or political goals. The fictional genres used vary greatly, from realistic modern or historical settings to fantastic or futuristic eras.

Normally, if one knows what a role play game is, he’s got this idea of it:

WHAT WE DID:

We are young people from all Europe. We have been selected for one purpose: to write an inspirational manifesto for young creative europeans.

We will be divided into 5 focus groups, with one person from each country, because an intercultural environment can boost creativity but, oh my, it can be so messy.

Mission accomplished, I would say. It is written (in 5 different papers and many colours and by different hands, but hey, it’s here!)
