From Restriction as Inspiration to Fueling Creative Energy

— May 8, 2014 — Eco
These featured speakers share their strategies on the most effective ways of inspiring creativity. Host to a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and experiences, this collection offers inspiration for individuals in a variety of backgrounds.

Author Elizabeth Gilbert is featured twice here and she discusses the impulsive and unpredictable nature of creativity. Society places a great deal of pressure on creatives to produce their next great work, but she believes these types of expectations actually create obstacles for people. Creatives need to follow their own passions, devotion and need not be discouraged if they're experiencing a block; creativity is an ever-changing process.

Filmmaker Martin Villeneuve suggests obstacles and setbacks are the key to inspiring creativity because they force individuals to reevaluate situations, change plans and stretch their minds to come up with alternate ways of doing things.

In the eyes of Saki Mafundikwa, turning to one's culture and its history is the most lucrative manner of inspiring creativity. When discussing his own African culture, he believes it offers a surplus of untapped inspiration for artists and designers.

These speeches are a great source of inspiration for creativity and thinking outside the box for a wide range of positions and roles.
