EXPO-SE YOUR IMAGINATION… The call for EXPO 2020 is open!

Wouldn’t it be great to have the chance to be a CREA 2020 EXPO Presenter? 

Every year CREA Conference offers a variety of interactive workshops that expose participants to the many diverse perspectives of research and practice in the field of creativity.

These workshops are called EXPOs, they are 90 minute long and are offered in English and/or in French on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, in some editions after dinner too.  

EXPOs provide a one-off opportunity for experience and practice: they are interactive, engaging and experiential for the audience. 

They offer the right balance between content (models, frameworks, concepts) and practice (tools, techniques, exercises). In this way we stay true to our value of providing participants with hands-on learning opportunities, beyond keynote speeches/talks and beyond formal presentations of papers or research.

EXPOs  are positioned throughout the Conference to allow participants to customize their learning experience and capitalize on their learning by choosing the workshops that complement the main offering of CPS Programs and Immersion Programs. 

Anyone can submit a proposal for an expo and present at CREA Conference.
Expo presenters commit to register to CREA Conference and enjoy the full event.

EXPOs can either fully support this year’s theme, APPLY IMAGINATION or contribute to the participants’ wellbeing through fun activities, music, dance, biodanza, meditation, impro theatre, a walk in nature…

If you wish to submit a proposal, we encourage you to consider the following guidelines:

  • Keep your session experiential and interactive
  • Make deliberate connections to Creativity and Innovation, and to this year’s conference theme
  • Be sensitive to the needs of multi-cultural participants, both in content and process
  • Utilize multiple methods and media that will appeal to diverse learning styles

Most Expo Workshops are expected to be led by ONE PRESENTER, with a maximum of 2 Presenters in some instances. 

SELECTED EXPO PRESENTERS will receive a refund of 200 EURO on their registration fee at CREA and they can request to split the refund with their Co-Presenter. 

Now, imagine delivering your CREA 2020 EXPO in a dreamful corner of the Tuscan countryside: 

  • How might you adapt your idea to fully leverage all the site has to offer?
  • How might you add value and novelty to your workshop using less supplies? 
  • How might you avoid footprint and leave Dynamo Campus cleaner than you found it?

Ready… Steady… Imagine! 

When you are ready, fill the EXPO form in all its parts and Submit your EXPO proposal
