We need plenty of creativity to cope with the current lockdown and yet, being largely ‘immobile’, at home, can significantly reduce creative expression. Or might it actually increase it?
In this talk, Vlad Glaveanu will explore the numerous links between mobility / immobility and possibility / impossibility by drawing on scholarship from the new mobilities paradigm and creativity research. His aim is to reach a new understanding of movement and its value for our existence as intrinsically agentic and creative beings.
