Boosting Ideas will be facilitated
by Le Groupe Ouest and builds upon their methodology of pre-writing
and fuses this with experiences
from a recent transnational pilot
project between French and Danish writers, during which they collaborated in the development of new ideas
Pre-writing is designed to address the challenge
of writers tending to write too early.
From the field of neuroscience/cognitive science, it is apparent
that writing too early is most of the time paralyzing the birth
of new possibilities and stronger or more surprising story paths.
Pre-writing builds upon oral storytelling and feedback
from the audience or other writers.
Inspiration from outside our industry is another important
element in Boosting Ideas.
During the camps, we will take in experts and Inspirators from also from outside our industry to give our creators their view on their field: how they get inspired, how they develop and construct within their field?
