Okay, to be clear, we’re not without repremand for the incredible Mr. Jonah Lehrer who decided to fudge on some Bob Dylan quotes. However, the premise of his book “Imagine: How Creativity Works” is undoubtedly awesome and incredibly valid: no, imagination and creativity are not part of our nature, they are part of our nurture. At Dramatic Need where we seek to inspire youth to go deeper, further, wilder, and wider in their artistic creations and with their dreams, we’d like to share this little intro to the book with you. We are crossing thumbs Lehrer will be able to pass his changes for approval soon so the book can return to the market (read more about the news here) and more can partake in some of findings and views on creativity.
Today is YOUTH DAY in South Africa. We share our LOVE to all the beautiful youth and children with whom we work at Dramatic Need. You are amazing and inspire us continually.
