“What is creativity?” I asked a group of young women

Posted on

In a workshop with teenage girls I asked, “What is creativity?”   The answers surprised and I must say, delighted, me.  (They did not say, “painting a picture”.)

Creativity is to express no matter what and nobody can judge you.

Creativity reveals my raw emotions and without thinking, whatever is inside comes out, and it doesn’t have to make sense.

Creativity is a mix of emotions and feelings.

Creativity is to think freely without worrying about what others think of you.

Creativity is passion and no limits.  No one can say when to stop.

Creativity is expressing your unique self.

Creativity is to be proud and show off your unique self.

Creativity is a whole different world and you get to create it.

Creativity is thoughts expressed through our body and feelings, not our mouths.

Creativity is our individual thoughts and how expressed.

~~  Thank you brilliant women! ~~~~~~~

    Love this!!

    Creativity is freedom…to be able to let go long enough to find out you don’t need to hang on anymore.

    Great blog! I like your words 🙂
    take care,

  2. Thank you, Pat. I ADORE your definition!

  3. I like the responses. Creativity has myriad definitions, but I like to think that it’s:

    Bravery shared to enlighten, entertain, and even teach.

  4. Thanks for sharing, Andrew. In one short phrase you’ve captured many levels of what creativity can be. I especially love the Bravery… it does take that, doesn’t it?
