Starting an event or activity by reading aloud a short topical poem can set the tone and establish an emphasis on creativity right from the start.
Poetry engages people’s creativity and capacity for non- linear thinking. Opening with a poem can signal that the event is something out of the ordinary and prepare people for a more experimental mindset.
Poetry is used to inspire creativity in a variety of contexts. For example, see: 'Why Poets are Flocking to Silicon Valley'
