What is Creativity?

RSA Event 1 Comments

Great Room Auditorium, RSA House

  • Creativity
  • Social innovation

Our relentless drive to create makes us unique among living creatures. How can we harness this instinct, and where is it taking us?

We face global, ‘wicked’ challenges that require all our ingenuity to address. Luckily, as a species we have a seemingly unlimited capacity to generate solutions to our problems. But we still know very little about this creative impulse.

Renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt  visit the RSA to unravel the threads of the arts, neuroscience, evolution and technology which make up the tapestry of human creativity, and explain how creativity can be a driving force to propel us into the future.

Through understanding our ability to innovate -our most profound, mysterious and deeply human capacity we can rise to meet the challenge of remaking our constantly shifting world.
