The ‘Construing Creativity (from Theory to Practice)’ is a one-day event for everyone who is interested in creativity research.
The creativity research community is scattered around in different colleges and departments across the country. The goal of Construing Creativity is to bring together bright and curious minds with diverse views on creativity to inspire and foster learning.
We have a wonderful line-up of speakers from both academia and professionals from creative fields. Speakers will introduce their views and ideas on creativity, and how it is conceptualised in their work.
What is creativity? Is everyone creative? How to measure creativity?
