This week, I attended a breakfast event with a colleague.
One of the speakers was an experienced creative director in the media sector, and his performance was very inspiring. He talked about creativity: where it comes from, what you can do when you’re feeling blocked.
One of the things he said was that creativity comes from your mind, so fill your mind with new information and experiences. Go to the museum, read books, study some courses.
This resonated with me because, as it happens, I had just visited a museum the evening before: the Helsinki City Museum with an excellently implemented time machine and old Helsinki theme.
It had certainly been inspirational – they had even created a newspaper to fit the theme, Helsinki Echo.
And today, after some wet snowfall which translated into the streets and pavements getting slippery and public transport getting crowded, I attended an after work event where I followed a panel discussion on artificial intelligence. Yes, artificial intelligence and how it can become our buddy at work. Very interesting, indeed!
With several upcoming events locked in my calendar for this month, November, the drabbest month of the year, is looking more and more appealing.
What have you been up to?
Ps. The first 3 photos are actually from 2 weeks ago. Imagine less leaves and more darkness and it’s pretty much the same otherwise.
