Sometimes you experience something that will impact you, that will spark new ideas within you or that will cause you to deeply reflect on a given topic. I came across two videos on YouTube and Ted from Sir Ken Robinson where he talks about creativity and especially creativity and our education system. It made me think about how I view my own creativity and I couldn’t agree more with his lecture on Ted. I was not that bad at school, but if creativity would have been more emphasized maybe my choices would have been different, maybe I would have found my voice more easily. I have always been involved in creative activities, my greatest passions were dance (jazz), and now photography. But it’s only recently that I’ve fully came to realize how creative I am and, above all, how I need to reach into this world inside me, this place from which comes forth all my ideas and inspiration. Like Sir Ken Robinson says, creativity should be taken as seriously as arts and literature and taught in the same way.
Here are the two videos. The first is a beautiful, beautiful video, very inspiring and worth viewing on a full screen as there are many wonderful images. But what touched me the most is the message it conveys. It’s one of the most beautiful videos I have seen yet.
And this is the lecture on Ted. Very inspiring and into which I often recognize myself.
Have a beautiful week everybody 🙂
