    ABSTRACT

    There is a lack of 'explicit education' of different modes of creativity and different methodologies for initiating creative processes. This is important for not only art practitioners, but specifically for developers of tools that support creative processes. The workshop, titled the "Creating-Creative-Processes-Workshop", will demonstrate how a series of short exercises can provide a brief experience with a wide variety of distinct forms of creative processes, geared towards professionals that sit "inbetween" the sciences and the arts. Consequently participants experience a greater critical awareness of the methodologies and techniques chosen to create something artistic, the design of tools for creative productions, the understanding of creative processes in us humans, and the potential diversity of interaction between software tools and humans in the process of being creative.
