What is creativity?
Anyone in the creative industries will know how difficult it can often be describing to someone what you “do” for a living. Being “creative” isn’t easily defined and is not something I think you can learn: you either have it or you don’t. Similarly, the way in which an individual approaches their creativity is a rare and highly personal process.
