The City & Creativity
Despite some of the problems that have come out regarding the research behind this book, Imagine: how creativity works by Jonah Lehrer contains some great insights. Last night I had a girls night out with some good friends and being in the city, reminded me of the importance of the city in creativity. Lehrer talks about this in his book. More patents come from people living in the city, more creativity is birthed in cities. So….if you’re looking for a little more creative inspiration, try spending a little more time in populated places – something about people, many people, spark new ideas in us!
