A creative summer

The FT Work & Careers team recently took a class in how to become more creative at work and learnt that getting away from your desk is key. In this summer series, our writers try different out-of-office activities to see whether they help develop creativity.

Can deserting your desk for a public location with better coffee spark fresh insights?

Allowing time to take in exhibitions can help us think differently and be inspired

How an hour outside the office allows space for free-flowing thought and new insights

Can a night out watching a catchy hit musical stimulate the creative juices?

Can spending a day in silence and contemplation stimulate deep thought and new ideas?
