If I were King of Australia... Edward de Bono
Named 'The Godfather of Lateral Thinking', Edward de Bono, was in Australia over the past week to participate in a Creative Innovation 2010 Conference in Melbourne. Run by Creative Universe, the idea is to unlock our full creative potential. The concept of the conference was to share ideas and try to solve a few global and community issues. A good idea should create value to both ourselves and our communities.
This is the work which we are involved in, using our paper and puppetry workshops. We present these world-wide in schools and universities, to help nurture creativity and channel ideas into short performance pieces, which then can be taken much further. How much creative innovation are we missing out by not thinking outside the box, while at the same time forgetting to look at the wealth of innovation deep inside of ourselves.
