Creativity is a broad term that fascinates us in all its facets. It can have different meanings to different people and spring from different sources. Even in traditionally “non-creative” jobs, creativity plays a major role in tackling problems. Imagine how actors play a role and prepare for it, or how musicians perform or write their songs. So what about us? What drives our creativity, what does it come with?
When we had the chance to sit down and talk with the academy award winner Peter Ramsey during the THU event, we asked him that question. You can see his answer to “What comes with creativity?” question at the end of the article. As mentioned, creativity is not a one-size fits all concept and we asked the same question to you, our followers, on our Instagram Stories, how you would answer the question of “Creativity #ComesWith…”?
And you did not disappoint! So many answers. Insightful, witty, emotional, motivating, and some might even made us giggle and blush.
Without further ado, here are the top answers:
