What it takes to Keep Creativity Alive

by Lina on August 20, 2013

I’ve been thinking a great deal about this blog and what it means to me. It started with a passion to explore ways to nurture creativity in children. As I’ve researched and explored this topic further, I’ve discovered that it’s about that and so much more. So many ideas race through my mind about what it means to be creative and what makes us creative and for that reason I decided to encapsulate all of those thoughts in one place. Below is my graphic representation of all the things that come to mind when I think about what Keeping Creativity Alive is all about.

What is creativity about for you? Tell me, did I miss anything?

For me…trust is the one thing I struggle with most. I often wonder if I’m creating something that is good, bad, ugly, will fall apart, colors don’t match. But when I trust myself and just go with it, it flows and turns into something beautiful. I love your child silhouette (could be your inner child) filled with so much love and desire to be creative.

Very good list indeed! PLAY can be one word to add.
I know it is implied in your words. I think we need to honour PLAY as a important catalyst to creativity and living a full life. Are you familiar with the work by Stuart Brown?
