Four authors explain how they unlock their creativity and spark their imagination. What did they create when they were young? And why do they believe everyone should have more free time in their lives to explore, invent and dream?

With the help of the audience, the panel will create models and artwork live on stage, and every audience member will get a free creative pack to take home afterwards to invent their own creations.
