The Buzz 1: “What will be the most coveted skill of the future?…Creativity…A computer lacks imagination or creativity to dream up a vision for the future.…the emotional competence a human being has… We must embrace and develop our creativity, and then use technology creatively to solve problems of the world.” [] The Buzz 2: “When you think about old masters of art such as Pablo Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, you can clearly understand why their paintings are valued at a high premium: because of their inherent innovation and creativity…Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting Salvador Mundi sold for $450M – buying a trace of Da Vinci’s genius, his vision, his creativity through the painting.” [ibid] The Buzz 3: “During the global pandemic, creativity has arguably never been so rich, whether it is advertisers producing innovative ways to reach their consumers, to businesses finding ways to operate under unprecedented circumstances, to people looking for ways to communicate, entertain and feel close to their loved ones. Sir John Hegarty: “Creativity can change the way we feel about something and will stay with us for eternity.” [] The Buzz 4: “Employers from all domains make their way to creative colleges to hire people who can bring innovation and design thinking into their organisations.…sit up, take note and make the required shifts to ensure they are ready to be leaders in the Future Economy.” [] We’ll ask Meg, Hafdahl, D. C. Gomez, Charles Breakfield and Mark L. Lefebvre for their take on The Future of Creativity: Is Technology Helping or Hindering?
