Weekend Creativity Series - How To Be Creative


I’ve shown lots of examples of other people being creative - building, drawing, dancing, and so on. The hope is that it has given you some ideas about how to become more creative yourself.

Maybe we should take a step back, though, and talk again about creativity in a more general sense. Can we learn to be creative, or more creative?

This is a short overview video that talks about the sources of creativity, stages of creativity, and some of the more recent views of cognitive scientists on the matter.

Collaboration can be key. Bouncing ideas off one another, trying things out, and being willing to drop things that aren’t working seem to be common elements in the creative process.
