Fostering Creativity and Collaboration: The Neuroscience of Collaborative Creativity | 23 April 2018
What is happening when we are in the creative zone? And how does interaction with others play a key role in ideation?
When we get together and get excited by coming up with something new, amazing things happen – our brains and bodies activate and synchronise, releasing chemicals that make our thought processes faster and more nimble, increase how quickly we absorb information, and allow us to combine concepts differently and create brand new ones. We turn on multiple parts of our brains, and even build brand new brain if we are really connected and engaged.
So how and why does all this happen? And how can we foster it?
Join Dr Ilse Treurnicht (Former CEO, MaRS Discovery District in Ontario, Canada) and Dr Fiona Kerr (Neural and Systems Complexity Specialist) for a thoughtful discussion on the neuroscience of collaborative creativity.
Presented by The University of Adelaide and the Thinkers in Residence program, this session is part of the Creative Revolutionaries series. New in 2018, Adelaide’s Creative Revolutionaries series features an impressive roster of internationally renowned artists, creatives and entrepreneurs, sharing their vision and expertise through a busy calendar of free events.
