At the start of the series I like to stay it little bit more on the theme of colours. Colours are very important as they provoke an emotional response. Combining a wide range of colours in an unusual setting will certainly lead to new and fresh ideas. It might not be everyone´s taste, but once in a while it is very useful to leave the own „colour scheme“ to reach new continents of thought and method. (Warning: You might feel tempted to put on your sun glasses while watching the following video of „Catalyst Ranch in Chicago„, to protect your eyesight ;-). Try to resist this reflex :-)))

As a change agent for creativity and coworking I believe it is time to take coworking to the next level. As their are some spaces that are very beautiful and inspire creativity, there are some that are happy to offer not much more than a chair and a desk. Sitting and writing is very important, but there is a lot more required to enable a coworking space to be creative as a whole. In this series I like to look at all aspects that foster individual as well as group creativity in a coworking space. When people think of creativity very often they think of colours or a colourful environment. Colours are very important as they provoke an emotional response. We need to be in tune with our emotions when we want to be creative as individuals. More importantly we need to be aware of our emotions if we want to relate to and create successfully with our coworkers. The wider the ranger of colours in our environment, the wider the range of emotional responses. Natural colours and natural materials usually offer a wider range of tones or colour shades than artificial ones.
