  • Icon workshop.svgWorkshop

Rafael Bernardo is a Designer and Typographer, who has developed a systematic methodology to reflect, project and tune the rhythm and groove of creative workflows. Join his workshop at the Forward Festival to get insights into the »Be Water my Friend« methodology and how to apply it as a creative individual or team.


During the first part of the workshop, you will get an introduction into the three fundamental tools of the »Be Water my Friend« Methodology.

01. »The Context Collector«, a tool to define contextual situations.

02. »The Harp of Attraction«, a tool to locate emotional positions.

03. »The Creative Circle«, a tool to synchronize structures and functionalities of processes.


In the second part we will shift from theory to practice and start an open dialogue. Here, the participants can propose topics or situations of their interest, to get a better impression of how the »Be Water my Friend« methodology can affect the everyday quality of creative input and output.



The workshop will take place twice:

Workshop 1 -> Thursday 12.3.  // 14:00 – 15:00

Workshop 2 -> Friday 13.3. // 11:30 – 12:30
