TeenTalk / Wed 24 Oct / 4:30 pm - 6 pm
We talk a lot about the value of creativity and its value in our studies, the arts, and working life, but what if all that talk were misguided? Oli Mould thinks it might just be.
Join us to hear about why this expert in urbanism and geography thinks we need to move away from our fixation with creativity. Listen to his thoughts on why the whole concept of creativity is overrated and counter-productive, and find out how an alternative approach could lead to fairer cities and happier lives.
Oli Mould will also give a talk to adults, see our Evening Salon with Oli Mould.
