A guide to Creative Thinking (UWL) and Red 270

Late Afternoon/early evening yesterday I went along to what is now the University of West London to learn a little about 'Creative Thinking'.
UWL Ealing - Looking like the 21st Century

The celebrated John Ingledew is at the forefront of what must be a most important area in our creative industries - making the idea of thinking outside the box second nature.

It's fair to say I think that not all ideas that are different are necessarily good and I for one found the idea of a presentation being made from behind me with screen in from slightly off putting - but worth trying I guess.

At the end of the session I was minded to look at things from a different angle(!) and was severely tempted to buy the new book - A Guide to Creative Thinking at only £10 it looked a bargain - also impressed at how the former Ealing college has been revamped!

Unusually in this slot  this is not my photo but one from The Tate  -credited below (I found it in a tweet).

I couldn't resist it as it is - Miereles the Brazilian artist has done something which I think is quite amazing, using the power of 'Social Media' to source all the elements in this room
