Virtual Author’s Talk and Signing: My Creative Space by Donald M. Rattner, Architect

November 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

CT United States

Did you know that the color of your walls, the direction you face, and the height of your ceilings can all greatly impact your ability to come up with creative ideas?

Architect Donald M. Rattner delves into these and other elements of our built surroundings that scientists and psychologists have found to positively influence creative task performance. The extensively illustrated talk will draw from his newly published book My Creative Space: How to Design Your Home to Stimulate Ideas and Spark Innovation, 48 Science-based Techniques.

Whether you’re a writer, design professional, entrepreneur, artist, work in a creative industry or pursue a personal passion for pleasure, work at home full- or part-time, this talk will help you begin turning living space into creative space. No previous design expertise required (although it’s ok if you have it!).

Attendees will receive a discount coupon code at the event toward the purchase of a signed copy of the book.

Attendees will be emailed a web link on the day of the event.
