Former frogs identified an internal team-building opportunity: those who aren't at the director level (and therefore don't have to attend the creative leadership meeting each Friday at 11) have an unsupervised hour. What should we do with it! Not work of course.
Creative Forum is a wide-open format, for the exploration of topics and mediums of play run the full gamut. Past Creative Forums have included pop-up manga reading rooms; a presentation on the history of sneaker culture; a podcast on hostile design; hands-on activities such as terrarium-building and dumpling-making; music video viewings; and guest speakers on musicology and calligraphy (generally, friends of frogs). Anything related to design, technology, art, music, architecture, science applies.
I've facilitated Creative Forum for two years now and the activity and collaboration continues to inspire and unite us all, and give us a real creative well to draw from.
