If You Have A Brain, You Are Creative

Michael Gough

About this video


Imagine a world without creatives driving the next generation of innovation. This reality is coming. We are all born creative, yet today’s education system stifles creative expression and celebrates test scores and ultimately re-enforces elitism. In this talk, Michael will share some of the recent thinking necessary to inspire a new generation of collaborative creatives and the dynamics that redefine how designers create.
