Co-creative at a distance
Eliminate creative Zoom fatigue!
Now Mural is also offering interesting on-line workshops and playlists to envision how to connect with each other more deeply through visual thinking. This is a great way to build in creative engagement for the future of team and client collaboration that is happening now.
Wonder also aims to eliminate ‘Zoom fatique’ by offering a (virtual) space where groups can meet and talk in a more spontaneous and fluid way. It aims to connect others by enabling more spontaneous chats, random encounters, unexpected conversations, by moving around more freely between groups. They call this concept fluid togetherness.
The Digital Society School also put together some great 10 tips and exercises (such as drawing your colleague) to make working from home with a team a success.
The final tip is to engage Draw up! Draw up is a collective of Dutch professionals that offer live drawing. They now offer their services at a safe distance, via videoconferencing such as Zoom, Microsoft teams, or Google Meet. Thus the same, but with safe screen in between.
In summary, for a successful remote workshop session, pick and prepare the right tools, people, plan timing carefully, and create the expectation for active participation.
And if you really want to get out of video-conferencing calls? Here are ways without upsetting anyone.
