[ecrea] Everyday Creativity Conference

Tue Jun 12 18:02:13 GMT 2018

  Morgan Centre conference: Everyday Creativity

Date: 10-11 July 2018
Venue: The University of Manchester


Creativity is often equated with individual artistry or genius – what we might call creativity with a ‘big C’ – but our world is also full of much more humble or quotidian forms of ‘small c’ creativity which come alive in the ordinary and extraordinary, charismatic and mundane, dogged and revelatory, experiences of everyday life.  Creativity can be part of change, struggle and resistance, as well as histories, traditions, environments, stories and narratives.  Creativity can take shape in materialities, in memory, in aesthetics and in domestic practices and everyday forms of making and doing.  Creativity is part of our everyday lives, our practices, imaginations and social relations.

This major conference uses the theme of ‘Everyday Creativity’ in an open way – without insisting on any one prescriptive definition - as a starting point for interdisciplinary dialogue.
