The workshop initially began with a few talks and introductions from the people involved in running the event (see talk notes below) we then moved onto a Lego Serious Play session which involved us creating various structures based on 3 tasks and involved discussing why we created this and what it meant. The first task was to create a tower with a window, then to attach it to the towers that the people on our table had created which got us discussing things and really helped to break the ice, it meant that we became more relaxed and interacted with each other more. The second was to present ourselves as creatives using the lego, allowing people to get to know each other better, i showed that i was more of a creative thinker rather than a practical person and my ideas were always much stronger than the outcomes.The final part was the representation of our views of ‘local national global’
Lego serious play is used at corporate events, it allows adults to break down the boundaries they have built up as they grew up and allows them to work more freely. I really enjoyed this part of the day, not only was it incredibly nostalgic, but it really did give me more of a sense of creative freedom – it made me consider how restricted i had been with my own uni work and if i needed to be more experimental with my work whilst also working to make the end product a high standard.
