A Deeper Understanding of Creativity | Daniel Cape | TEDxAsheville

Many people believe that creativity is an ability that people are born with or reserved for only a gifted few. The fact is that everyone is creative. By understanding a vocabulary for creativity, people can identify and foster creativity in themselves and others. This talk will expel false assumptions about creativity and provide participants with several important terms that can be used to solve everyday and complex problems. Daniel Cape is a creativity scholar and trainer who operates his business Experience to Creativity out of Asheville, North Carolina. His approach to creativity is providing people with fun learning experiences and simplifying creativity so they can understand it and apply it to all aspects of their work and lives. He derives his creativity from unique life experiences that include serving as a combat engineer officer in the Army National Guard, working as the Director of an English language summer camp in Ukraine, over 15 years of experience drawing caricatures, a career as an experiential educator, and other international work. Daniel is the author of From Experience to Creativity: The experiential educator’s incomplete guide to creativity and the creator of EPIC Cards that teach and promote creativity. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
