Creativity Challenge 2015 - Transferable Criteria of Creativity: A Universal Aesthetic
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 the talk:
The idea of creativity has been broadened in recent years to go beyond a spiritual understanding focused on fine art, although there is still resistance to “creativity creep”. Transferring creativity concepts to areas and activities where they are not traditionally applied requires, among other things, concepts for recognising creative thinking and acting in these areas – a universal aesthetic of creativity.
