All About Improv, Applied Improv, Creativity, Play, Innovation… Part 3
Posted on 26 April 2016
On April 26, 2013, I published a blog post titled “All About Improv, Applied Improv, Creativity, Play, Innovation…”, with a link to a 16-page list of resources that I’d compiled.
Exactly two years later, on April 26, 2015, I published “All About Improv, Applied Improv, Creativity, Play, Innovation… Part 2”, with a link to a 20-page list of more resources that I’d compiled.
Since then, thanks mainly to my travels on Twitter and Facebook, I’ve found lots more good stuff. I’ve read several books and hundreds of articles, watched lots of videos, and selected what I think are the most relevant, useful, interesting and thought-provoking ones. (I don’t necessarily agree with all the opinions expressed in the articles, videos and books – I’m simply sharing the resources to inspire conversation and learning.)
In this installment, I’ve included a section about the sometimes-contentious topic of failure, which has prompted a lively discussion among members of the Applied Improvisation Network in recent months.
So here’s my gift to you: my third installment in the series (23 pages long), absolutely free.
I’ve sorted the resources into four categories:
Part A: Specifically about Improv and Applied Improvisation
Part B: More generally about Creativity, Play, Innovation…
Part C: Should We “Celebrate Failure”?
Part D: Books
Within each category, the items are listed in alphabetical order, by the author’s surname or the name of the source organisation.
If you click on one of the links in the PDF and find that it doesn’t work, copy and paste the link into your browser – it might work that way.

At the conference, I led my “Life is a Playground of Possibilities:
Improvising More Resourceful, Joyful Ways of Being” workshop
outdoors next to that playground.
I’d love to hear from you. Is my list useful to you? Do you have any questions? And would you like to suggest other resources that I can include in the next installment in the series? Please post a comment, send me an email or tweet me nice at @kayross.
And if you love improv and applied improvisation, please feel free to share this blog post and the list with anyone you know who might benefit.
