The Healthcare KC is partnering with The CARITAS Project and its Generative Space Task Force to present a virtual workshop by Gregory Splinter to provide opportunities to learn about Generative Space through a personal experience. This real-time, highly participatory, experiential, and interactive workshop provides the opportunity for each participant to access their deep inner wisdom by creating their own intuitive drawing and interpreting their drawing through an immersive experience facilitated by Gregory Splinter. Each participant will create and keep a drawing that they have created as a reminder of the interpretation of their experience.
Materials needed to participate: matte black heavy paper and soft pastel chalks are preferred, but an 11”x17” sheet of paper and colored pencils/markers/crayons are also acceptable. A digital drawing tool such as an iPad is also suitable. No prior drawing experience is necessary.
Note that this is a 2 hour-long program session with no break. See: www.generativespaceweek.net, click ‘About Us’, and scroll down to see images of drawings from previous workshops.
Speaker: Gregory Splinter, AIA, is a thought leader in design, an architect, an artist, and a poet. Practicing as an architect/urban designer, Gregory facilitates "Intuitive Design" workshops for individuals and teams seeking an open-mind, open-heart, open-will approach to creative problem solving. During a typical workshop, Gregory guides learners in an intuitive approach to design and to discern a better possible outcome - primarily in matters of urban design, architecture, business decision-making, community development, and personal growth. During these workshops, Gregory teaches individuals and teams to move past their own personal agendas to seek collaborative group clarity, gaining insight to an enlightened decision beyond the means of any one individual. Using raised awareness techniques, art, and contemplative practices, learners connect with their own intuitive abilities to lead with clear insights into the emerging future. As a younger, ‘impractical idealist’, Gregory pursued the possibility with Charles W. Moore, FAIA, as his mentoring architect, that a more humane architecture could be conceived from the heart rather than solely by the rational mind. This quest led to his Master of Architecture - Urban Design thesis subject of study, now called "Intuitive Design." From ‘impractical idealist’, today Gregory considers the use of one’s intuition as ‘practical realism’. As the recognition and value of intuition continues to grow, Fortune 500 companies and acclaimed institutions of higher education are now incorporating such inclusive design practices into their present work. Additionally, Gregory is a co-founder and partner in Yowza Architects, in Viroqua, Wisconsin.
