On Creativity...and why it matters

On Creativity...and why it matters

What is creativity? How do we go about getting into our creative projects? What do we do if we get stuck? And why does it really matter for our minds, culture and common humanness?

What is creativity? How can we approach creative projects and why is creative expression important?

With special guest, Kimmy Hogan – Digital artist and all round loveliest woman, we first discuss what creativity is, and get insight into what creativity is all about – from a professional creative!

Next we shine a light on Rick Rubin’s book, The creative Act – A way of being

We ponder different ways we express ourselves creatively, our barriers to creativity and even touch on the future of creative expression with artificial intelligence.

Next, we turn down our gaze to The Original Thought creative meditation for some play and inspiration.

I hope you enjoy this chat today and it leads you to appreciate your creative acts in this world both physically and on the canvas of your mind.

Head over to www.kimmyhogan.com.au to get your peepers around the magic that Kimmy creates.

To buy the book; www.readings.com.au – for this one it is worth investing in the hardback rather than audible – the notes section in the book and the time to ponder between pages makes it so worth it.

And if your wondering - This is the recipe for Kimmy’s favourite cocktail (you’re welcome)

Thai Basil Smash:

- 45ml good quality Gin (i.e Four Pillars)
- 15ml sugar syrup
- 3 Thai basil leaves
- Long red chilli, deseeded
- 1-2 slices fresh ginger
- 30ml lime juice

- Thai basil leaves

In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, muddle basil leaves, chilli, and ginger. Add lime juice, sugar syrup and gin. Add ice and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a Thai basil leaf.
