Collaboration & Co-Creation
We value our relationships with other organisations and networks that enable us to engage wider audiences and share and develop perspectives and understandings of what creativity means. This process can be facilitated through on-line conversations, surveys, workshops or other professional development events.Some examples of collaborative and facilitated activities are provided below.
The products of our collaborations are often published in Creative Academic Magazine for the benefit of the wider community.
ORGANISATIONS & NETWORKS
We have productive relationships with #creativeHE – a Google+ Forum led by Chrissi Nerantzi to support discussion and sharing perspectives on creativity and ImaginED and CIRCE both led by Gillian Judson. We also contribute to the annual World Creativity & Innovation Week global event.
THE CENTRE FOR IMAGINATION IN RESEARCH, CULTURE & EDUCATION
CIRCE is an international organization dedicated to imagination in all its varied forms. While we have deep roots, interest, and involvement in the field of education, leadership, architecture, business, interior design, the visual arts, marketing, and theatre. It’s mission is to ‘grow engaged minds: imagining and making better worlds’. CIRCE is led by Dr Gillian Judson who is an active member of Creative Academic. Professor Norman Jackson is a member of CIRCE’s international board of advisors.
UNIVERSITIES & COLLEGES
We welcome invitations to contribute to the professional development programmes of educational institutions. We have worked with institutions in the UK, USA, Ireland, Saudi Arabia and China. These papers illustrate the process of facilitated collaboration and knowledge sharing during an institutional workshop.
