We've all heard someone say "I don't have a creative bone in my body", or perhaps we've said it ourselves at some point. Is this true? Are some of us capable of creativity and some of us not? Or is it an inherent capability in all of us?

Definition of Creativity: the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness

Debate Point ONE - ​​Creativity and ​entrepreneurship
 
'inventiveness': Would you consider entrepreneurship to be creative? Are Entrepreneurs born or are they made? What motivates an entrepreneur?  How can we train ourselves to be an entrepreneur?


Debate Point TWO - ​Creativity and innovation
 
What drives someone to innovate? Is it a gift of ingenuity? Or is it a drive to solve a problem? What kind of creative solutions have you come up with in your life ... at work, at home, as a parent?


Debate Point THREE - ​Creativity and artistic expression
 
Are artists born that way? What do we need to do if we want to be able to express ourselves in some form of artistic medium?
Painting/sketching/drawing
​Writing
Sculpture
Music
​Other?


​Debate Point FOUR - ​Creativity ... a jolly good idea
 
Is creativity the ability for an individual to come up with 'a jolly good idea'? What kind of practise can we develop in our daily life to stimulate ourselves to be more creative?
