School of Creative Arts Public Talk Series
The Creative Arts and the University
A 3D Approach: Directions - Deviations - Disruptions
Creativity has always been a hard nut to crack: as soon as you try to codify it, it will reinvent itself and confound you even more. This is what makes creative practice and thinking an exciting area to investigate and research. As we move into a world that requires creative solutions to on going problems, throughout 2013, the School of Creative Arts will be hosting a series of public talks on various aspects of the Creative Arts and their relationship to university research and education.
Our point of departure is the following quote from John L Hennessy, President, Stanford University:
The arts can help us break out of traditional patterns of thinking and adopt fresh approaches to intellectual experiences…I believe the arts offer an expanded tool set for learning and understanding that can enhance creative thinking skills. But this will also require facilitating more cross-disciplinary collaboration between the arts and other fields. http://news.stanford.edu/news/2006/april26/hentext-042606.html
