Creativity Challenge 2015 - 20 Minutes
This year in April the TLC Educational Trust hosted a Creativity Challenge. The theme of the conference was 'Crossing Boundaries'. It attracted a wealth of national and international speakers - the movers and shakers of creativity. Each speaker generously shared their own unique insights and perspectives. We recorded these talks so that we could share them with our students, friends, stakeholders and anyone else interested in the subject of creativity.
About Dr Nick Wilson:
Nick Wilson’s research and teaching focuses on creativity and cultural management. In particular, he explores the organization and management of arts and culture, social creativity, and the transformational and emancipatory potential of creative and cultural(artistic) engagement in everyday life.
Nick’s interest in ‘creative living’ is influenced by many things, including his professional training as a singer and work in entrepreneurial education. He is Deputy Head of the Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries, King’s College London. His latest book The Art of Re-enchantment: Making Early Music in the Modern Age was published by Oxford University Press in 2014.
About The Talk:
What would you do if you were given 20 minutes extra each day to be creative? In this talk I draw on research findings from two major new campaigns in the UK – ‘64 Million Artists’ and ‘Get Creative’ that are offering the public just that possibility. “20 minutes” highlights the importance of crossing personal boundaries, whilst exploring how we might ‘give permission’ as a society to engage in creative practice.
