Creativity

breathing space

on Sat 11 Aug 2012

So, deep:black has been on a retreat. On a creative retreat. It did occur to us that ‘retreat’ is what an army does before getting ready to strike again, a time to recollect, reconnect and re-form. Well, in some ways doing business in the current financial climate is a bit like entering a battlefield, and our retreat was very much about gathering and reconnecting.

But we also thought of the ‘treat’ in the word and looked for a place that would feel like a treat. We ended up in ‘Breathing Space’, a small retreat house close to the Norfolk coast somewhere between Happisburgh and Sea Palling.

‘A creative company is no home for peace and serenity’. And even if a highly creative workplace is not always a comfortable place to be, it can be a place where people will argue gracefully and where one can be given the space and time to re-examine things.
