Much is talked about the importance of the Creative Process in the development of ideas and research, but how much do we actually know about what it entails? How do approaches to it differ across and within disciplines? What can academics working in different disciplines learn about the creative process from other fields? And how can the creative process best be nurtured?
Each debate will bring together a panel from the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities respectively to contribute their perspectives to the theme considering questions such as:
What do we understand by ‘creative process’?
How is it understood and examined across the disciplines?
What can people working in different disciplines learn about creative process from other fields?
What are the results of ‘creative process’, who decides and can it be learned?
Do we unnecessarily fetish it?
Where would we be without it?
Each event will be from 6.00pm to 7.30pm, followed by a drinks reception. Attendance is free, but registration is required for each event.  Please click here to register or visit our website:
