Essence of World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15-21


Original / Short from Vucko on Vimeo.
Creativity is natural. Allow it.
Give creativity time and space. Freedom.
Give it practice.
Creativity means change. Notice what needs changing.
What can you do about it?
Creativity is not about setting standards for comparison;
it is a doorway for
expression,
exploration,
discovery,
curiosity,
focus,
movement,
stillness,
play.
New ideas, new decisions, new actions. New pair of eyes.
Creativity takes courage to separate, if only for a moment, into a world of imagination, and remix, combine, and/or elevate old ideas to new perspectives, new times, new futures.
Practice, learn, experience and grow from
frustration,
confusion,
curiosity,
clarity,
joy,
laughter,
breakthrough,
insight,
aha.
Creativity is natural. Allow it time and space. Freedom.
Keep fresh your capacity to create and innovate.
Celebrate World Creativity and Innovation Week.
April 15-21 every year.
Notice what needs changing.
What can you do about it?
List your activity for #WCIW2017.
Inspire the world.

Popular claims of a genetic link between creativity and psychosis often exaggerated | Genetic Literacy Project

| | July 16, 2015
For some, the mystery that surrounds creativity is at least partially rooted in the concept of the “mad genius,” a theory that links creativity with conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Take painter Vincent Van Gogh and composer Robert Schumann; some scholars think they both had bipolar disorder, and many have used that as a justification for their unique artistic abilities.
But here’s the thing: the connection between creativity and psychosis isn’t nearly as strong as some have suggested — even when you take human genetics into account. The overlap between genetic variants that can be used to predict both creativity and schizophrenia, or creativity and bipolar disorder is actually very small. And the method that most researchers use to define creativity is sorely lacking.
To demystify the idea of the “mad genius,” we made a video that dives headfirst into the latest genetic study to link creativity with psychosis. You can also check out the full report we published on the subject right here.
The GLP aggregated and excerpted this blog/article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis. Read full, original post: ‘Mad genius’ no more: the genetic link between creativity and psychosis is pretty weak

Good short creativity video.  Worth the four-minute watch.  What a relief to be able to unlock the connection between creativity and madness, no?
