"Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status." - Sir Ken Robinson
Volume 10 Letter From the Editor:
Sir Ken Robinson has spoken for The Art Of and along with being one of our most admired speakers has been leading the charge for a revolution in education, starting with creativity.
We often get stuck in routines responding to the demands of both our day-to-day lives and our careers. Creativity can be seen as a luxury afforded to only those with an abundance of free time or to those that have been born with that ‘special’ gift. I would encourage you to think differently about creativity and how it is implemented in your life.
Creativity is about generating ideas or producing things and transforming them into something of value. It often involves being inventive, ingenious, innovative and entrepreneurial. Creativity is not just about special people doing special things. We all have the potential to be creative and creativity is a skill that needs to be developed.
