Creativity: a provocation

You can download the PowerPoint of my talk at Mount Kelly College, on 18 April 2017, here: Creativity_a provocation_Mount Kelly College_April 2017_Anthony Wilson.


  1. Hi Anthony, some great insights here and I love the cross-disciplinary out-take. It reminds me of the outlook of Miroslav Holub, himself a poet and immunologist. “Creativity is the source of waves across of broad surface of culture – new, unique, surprising, elegant waves.” (from Maxwell’s Demon). Surely one of the biggest institutional barriers to creativity in the UK is how our education system still points people towards either science or the arts without recognising that it is often the interaction of the two that sparks genuine innovation?
