Symposium: Research as a Radical Act of Creativity

Radical Creativity research symposium

Radical creativity brings forward new ideas that challenge prevailing organisational modus operandi, rejecting incremental and iterative processes in favour of novel practices and approaches. Within the context of radical creativity, learning objectives focus on meaning-making, triggering curiosity and tackling complexity through problem framing.

This symposium focuses on the impact of creativity on research itself by mapping what radical creativity might mean in different fields of research. What might be the differences in the meaning of creativity to researchers in art, in business, in computer science, or in media? In this symposium, speakers from across the university will interrogate what we know and what potentialities there may be through research as a radical act of creativity.
