Creativity

We often talk in museum and gallery education about fostering creativity and about our own creative practices.

In this context, I think it’s interesting to read these two articles from the American Newsweek magazine:

What ideas do you have about how creativity can be developed?

  1. I believe that creativity in individuals in declining. Partly due to our education systems but that’s another story. On the flip side however I think that the creative capacity of society as a whole is increasing. Technology in particular through communication on a global scale is fueling inspiration on a scale never seen before and many are taking great advantage of that.

    If you want to encourage creativity more in individuals then I think you need to make it fun and quick. The games at http://creativitygames.net are a prime example of this. They are word games to they are accessible by anyone. They are a good example of something that is simple in concept yet powerful in execution.

    Lastly I think you need to take every opportunity to promote creativity and it’s importance. People need to be aware of what they are missing out on before they will take action to remedy it.

  2. I have a few posts on creativity on my blog. Check it out, I’d love some feedback on my pieces and posts. Thanks 🙂

  3. I love using relaxation to cultivate creativity. I used to think you got hyped up to create. Now I feel like I chill out and then feel jazzed during the process of creating.
