Talk: Wired to Create

Wired to Create offers a glimpse inside the “messy minds” of highly creative people. Kaufman and Gregoire discuss the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology, along with engaging examples of artists and innovators throughout history and the practices of mind that promote creative thinking. Kaufman and Gregoire untangle a series of daydreaming, seriousness, play, openness, sensitivity, solitude and collaboration to show that it is by embracing our own contradictions that we are able to tap into our deepest creativity.
