your expert facilitators
Creative Plus Business are expert facilitators of the collaborative
and practical workshop format known as a charrette.
This intensive and formulaic approach to problem-solving and design thinking is designed to help large groups work through challenges and reach a shared vision for an idea, a plan, a strategy or a creative project, in as little a time as possible.
We have worked extensively with government, commercial, and not-for-profit groups to help them use this fast and inclusive framework to work out issues of community engagement, strategic planning, marketing methodology, and more.
The charrette is ideal for creative organisations or groups who need to reach quick agreements about the challenges surrounding a clearly identified project.
The intensive nature of the charrette can forge strong relationships, identify root causes and priorities, and quickly coordinate agreements.
Ultimately a charrette can also contribute to an overarching strategy, funding document or business plan.
AWWW, SHUCKS YOU GUYS!

LISMORE CITY COUNCIL – CULTURAL AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT
In 2017 the Creative Plus Business team was successful in a bid to work with Lismore City Council to facilitate a one-day Cultural Hub charrette. The Northern Rivers has the highest number of creative practitioners and businesses outside the capital cities, so the objective was to have all stakeholders agree on how Council could establish Lismore as the most significant regional Cultural Hub in Australia.
