During this interactive lecture, creativity researcher Edward Clapp proposes a radical new approach to understanding creativity. Rather than subscribe to traditional “great man” notions of invention and innovation, Clapp puts forth a new approach to understanding the process of creativity that is rooted in cultural participation, rather than individual insight. Using examples from science, pop culture, and the work of young people at the Boston ArtScience Prize, Clapp reframes creativity as the “biography of an idea.” With a special focus on education, Clapp illustrates how this new orientation towards the creative process can make participating in creativity more equitable and accessible.
