Language + Creativity

Language + Creativity is a year long project that explores the topic of ideating multilingually. By conducting experiments with prompts that require the usage of more than one language, I aim to create an atmosphere of discovery and multiplicity of viewpoints. In multilingual brainstorming creative individuals will produce rich hybrid concepts based on the commingling of languages and distinct cultural worldviews. The project resulted in written research in the form of a book + booklet of assignments + curriculum development in the form of a class matching the policies and objectives of Pratt Institute + various experiments and collected responses.
