Reframing – The art of thinking differently

Radar workshop led by Karim Benammar

Independent philosopher Karim Benammar leads a workshop for artists and creatives in the arts on the art of thinking differently

Karim Benammar

Why do you do what you do, and why do you think what you think? How do you see yourself, your work, collaborators, the arts, and society at large? Are there underlying assumptions that you are not seeing? By questioning our mostly hidden assumptions, we can start to think differently about our approaches, projects, ways of working or audiences. 

In this online workshop, we will work in breakout session pairs on analysing and discussing our assumptions, and on changing them by reframing them. We will also design and discuss small experiments to change the way we work. A global pandemic is actually a good time to experiment with radical change, because everyone is more open to new approaches.

This workshop will give you a safe space to discuss key issues, worries and dilemmas in your work and your field with fellow creative artists, to come up with radical new approaches, and take the first mental step in putting them into practice.
