Dr. Karl Thomas.

Topic:

Creativity at the Heart of Innovation

Synopsis:

Too long has humanity been weighed down by a burdensome fabrication, the ‘creative genius,’ the divinely inspired or melancholy outsider who drags society into the future. At Congregation I will discuss the validity of our perceptions and seek to unburned humanity of its drive for ‘originality.’ Creative and critical thinking skills, which are the precursors of innovation, have been stunted by school, jobs and varying levels of cultural pressures or pigeonholing. Rarely in Ireland are we encouraged to question, or challenge the status quo. So, is it any wonder that we have a poor history of innovation?
