All fields face rules and bottom lines that can make it seem we have no room to be creative. But it is precisely when there are limitations that creativity can step in to save us.

Creativity is one of the most valuable skills we can bring to any workplace. It is a basic ingredient for an organisation that wants to thrive with change and uncertainty. Project Illusions workshops teach these skills.

These are useful because when you realise your perceptions have been“tricked,” you understand valuable lessons about how you block yourself from creative thinking.  Understanding our blocks is the first step to moving to a more creative place.

Even people who swear they couldn’t draw to save their life are shocked by the results of these exercises. They teach valuable observation skills that are transferrable to problem solving.

These exercises help participants learn how to stop making assumptions. It is this innovative thinking that can help delegates move to a whole new level of awareness to often change their "reality."

Learning simple magic tricks demonstrates some of the creative ways that magicians appear to accomplish "impossible" things.  It shows that logical thinking can create seemingly impossible results.

Watching magic performed is a strong way to communicate an ‘anything is possible’ mindset. These magical achievements are accomplished by making use of incorrect assumptions made by audiences. “Possibility” is in the eye of the beholder.

This is an interactive experience that reveals how reality is a fluid concept rather than a solid one.  It shows how creative thinkers are those who can juggle multiple perspectives.
