Brain, mind and creativity

Sesión Flash | Spanish

November 27 OF 2018 from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM

Where do ideas come from? No one knows, but we do know that inspiration’s worst enemy is the hyper noise around us that distracts us from being creative.

In addition, we have set ideas about ourselves, such as “I’m creative” or, on the contrary, “I’m not at all creative”. But creativity is a very broad concept and by taking a few simple steps, we can all create and combine new ideas.
