Musicology Colloquium Series:Anna Reid - "Creativity, Creation and Contrasts"

6 June 2012

Musicians, and others, have implicit understandings of the role of creative thinking and activity for their practice. For some a person is deemed creative, for others it is a product that is so deemed, and for others it is the process through which the product isformed. These views impact on pedagogical approaches and outcomes when they are conflated with assessment. In this presentation we will look at the intersections between creativity theories and practice and contrast the implications of these theories using, dare I say it, evidence from 'non-creative' disciplines and 'creative' ones. The evidence presented comes as the result of a decade long research project involving the fields of music, statistics, business, sustainability and law.
