This is a video of Gareth Loudon’s inaugural Professorial Lecture where he shares his thoughts on why creativity is important for our own happiness, for the happiness of others and for our learning and growth. He highlights different ways creativity can manifest, and presents some of the key factors that affect our creativity, including the role of purpose and our ‘state of being’. Finally, he reflects on the implications for how we educate our students, and how we run our organisations.
Note that he refers to a video clip in histalk of a famous try in rugby which could not be recorded for copyright reasons, so follow this link to watch 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.
