‘Unlocking Imagination was a free online wellbeing project created by Alina for the people of Milton Keynes which celebrated optimism, positivity and hopefulness at a time where people were feeling vulnerable, stressed, isolated, angry or frustrated as a result of the events of 2020.
Over the course of 2 workshops, we –
- Taught participants some dedicated wellbeing techniques to help them find their positive side and put the negative feelings of 2020 behind them.
- We also asked them to find their creative side and express yourself. We did this by recording a mindful piece of music – ‘Spiegel Im Spiegel’ by composer, Arvo Pärt; asking participants to watch/listen to the video and to return with their own creative responses to the video.
It was a fascinating project and one that all participants enjoyed, finding mindfulness and positivity as part of the process.
We created a final video containing the original video and all participant responses to the video. It is so inspiring! You can watch is HERE
