This is a video of my inaugural Professorial Lecture where I share my thoughts on why creativity is important for our own happiness, for the happiness of others and for our learning and growth. I also highlight different ways creativity can manifest, and present some of the key factors that affect our creativity, including our ‘state of being’, and the role of purpose. Finally, I reflect on the implications for how we educate our students, and how we run our organisations.
Note that I refer to video clip in my talk of a famous try in rugby which could not be recorded for copyright reasons, so follow this link to see it.
An interesting talk by Shama Rahman on creativity and the importance of bringing together people and ideas from the arts and sciences. It is also worth checking out Shama’s work at Jugular Productions.
