The mind map is a way to explore information related to a central theme—a word or image in the center of a blank page from which associations radiate.

In this workshop, we will use the mind map exercise as a visual thinking tool to examine the genesis of our connections to our creative practices and to consider the elements that inform them, including primary interests, dreams, memories, influences, current events, and key relationships. Additional related exercises build upon and expand findings. Discoveries serve as a springboard for work created throughout the term that holds more personal and, therefore, universal resonance.

Supplementary materials will be offered to complement and enrich the learning experience.

The Creative Mind Map is open to those using or experimenting with any media including photographers, videographers, filmmakers, painters, writers, and bookmakers.
