What does movement have to do with creativity?
Join the Maine Center for Creativity and Dylan Newcomb of UZAZU to discover how the way you move affects creativity.
PORTLAND, Maine (May 8, 2014) — On May 21, mind-body practitioner Dylan Newcomb will guest-host the final session of the Maine Center for Creativity’s (MCC) Creative Toolbox Salon series to discuss how movement directly impacts creativity. Alongside Dr. Kirsten Milliken of PlayDHD and MCC founder and executive director, Jean Maginnis, Newcomb will help participants explore how to integrate movement to their creative practice.
“Many people associate the desk with productivity,” said Maginnis. “However, we realize that creativity is something to be exercised, much like a muscle. It only makes sense to use movement and our muscles to boost our creative practice.”
Facilitated by Maginnis and Milliken, a licensed clinical psychologist, certified ADHD coach, and founder of PlayDHD, this session will introduce using breath and body movements to inspire creativity, release creative blocks, and bring to light new inspirations. The salon is casual and conversational, designed to encourage open communication and the sharing of ideas.
Where: Peloton Labs, 795 Congress St., 2nd Floor, Portland
When: 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 21.
Cost: Free for Maine Center for Creativity members and $15 for non-members.
