What to do when creativity is fetishized

How 10,000 Creative People Find Their Best Ideas

· Art Science Links,Organisational,Creativity Tools

Great survey that challenges the romanticism and some would say 'fetishism' that surrounds creatives, resulting in limiting how people think about their own creativity.

It reviews the responses of over 10,000 users from 143 countries, sharing some 100,000 data points that allowed them to identify strong trends across creative professions, geography, and age ranges.

I'm reminded of the work of Kevin Ashton* and others, who advocate that creativity is long hours, hard work, determination ..and most importantly available to anyone , not just the creative few.
