Today, we began the process of establishing a safe environment that promotes creativity, collegiality, and risk.
BY ANSWERING THE ESSENTIAL QUESTION: What kind of social classroom conditions promote creativity? How do we as a community of artists eliminate obstacles to writing creatively?
As a community of artists, writers, daydreamers, risk takers, CREATORS we know that we shall:
as we make mistakes
that are honest &
We shall keep calm.
Help someone if asked,
with constructive criticism
through feedback that is
respectful & original
because we pay attention
to inspire &
motivate others to start
engaging in conversations for ideas
compliment and be kind to people’s work
Make eye contact
share random ideas.
Say random ideas,
write random ideas,
So be yourself
be open minded
and most of all communicate.
In order to do this we won’t
Fight, be shy, dishonest
We won’t be obnoxious,
or critique negatively through disrespect
that makes fun of people’s work.
If feeling nervous or insecure, we won’t hide it
by disturbing others,
yelling across the room,
lying about work,
make fun of others,
gossiping or have side conversations.
We will not laugh at someone’s work unless its supposed to provoke that
because we don’t mess with someone’s work
So don’t be afraid to say what you think.
