David Bowie, RIP

David Bowie changed culture using his creativity. Watch this 3-minute 1993 video to hear David Bowie talk of his creative process. Do you think it is the same as yours? Different? What is your guess?

Many celebrities recognize Bowie’s influence on their work. Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Jay Z are a few examples. In the field, we call culture changing creativity Big C creativity.  Day-to-day creativity, the kind we might use let’s say in the kitchen or the garden  is called  Small C creativity. Do you think the processes for Big C and Little C creativity can be the same?

This simple exercise can be used during World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15 – 21 to hold conversations you might not otherwise have.
