How you express yourself
Elizabeth Gilbert's ideas of:
- ancestors were creative in order to survive
- the act of choosing curiosity over fear
I want to live in a world full of...
Who am I? What right do I have to take up other people's time?
- having new ideas = creativity
- medical professionals - also artistic in some way
Understanding there's another way to express yourself
Great artists are able to think critically and creatively.
Feeling of discovering your creativity.
Talent & Creativity comes in many forms
Shared creativity v creativity that you keep to yourself.
Performance v visual art
How did we box creativity in? Limited thinking
Adults saying to children "you're not very creative" and "don't even try that because you're not creative"
If you hear something enough, you'll start to believe it - good or bad. (is this true? sometimes? always?)
be able to see, support, acknowledge and recognize other people's creativity. Be the person that helps bring that out of other people.
Boxing creativity in v allowing it to be openminded thinking - sharing ideas.
Ripple effect of our own creativity and supporting the creativity of others
Speak your truth - when I see others speak their truth/be their authentic selves - it's inspiring and beautiful.
