The work of the Creative Life Research Center
is built upon these seven Creativity
is not exclusive to any one discipline or domain, but essential to all.
requires informal and formal curiosity—poking and prying with a purpose.
requires passion. Creative people share a passionate curiosity and engagement with some dimension of life.
includes the vision necessary to identify new challenges and new problems to solve.
requires Flow: concentration, engagement, and persistence in meeting complex challenges.
results from the interplay of people, places, processes, and domains, not just from "special" people thinking outside the box.
requires action: convincing others that a new idea, product, service, or artistic expression improves the status quo.
Creativity is essential for students, educators, families,
communities, and nations.
