The Truth About Creativity


Professor Anna Abraham - The Truth About Creativity.

An insight into what drives humans to be creative

Part of Leeds International Festival

What is creativity? Is creativity a special ability of a talented few or a capacity that everyone possesses? Is the right brain the creative brain? Are artists more creative than the rest of us? What are the differences and similarities between the creative processes of a composer, a novelist and a choreographer? Are scientists creative? What about accountants? Is creativity always a good thing? Why is it so hard to be creative? Can I train my brain to become more creative? Do drugs and alcohol enhance creativity? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this talk.

After her talk, Anna will have her book on the subject available for purchase.
