What is Creativity?

Posted: August 28, 2010 in Uncategorized

According to the New Oxford American Dictionary “Creativity” can be defined as: ” relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work”.

Sentence example: ” Change unleashes people’s creative energy”. How true this little sentence is. They say Nigeria has a basket full of creative minds, is this true? Can we prove to the world that Nigeria, Africa has more to offer than poverty, war, malaria and corruption?

We preach about creativity. How do we use it? How do we create it? How do we make other’s appreciate our works. In our search for money, or the fear of poverty we have been able to develop factors for survival, both morally and immorally. Someone once said that even the act of 419 is creativity (lol). The bad thing about using one’s creativity for unlawfully things is judgement day. For every man has his own judgement day. Be warned.

Like was stated in the last post Interface is here to help you harness your creativity.

“Do you know that working with your hands, creating things of beauty and worth, builds inner happiness? Boris Bali, former Dean of Fine Arts, Temple University, said, ” I am convinced that every human being possesses a creative urge to make beautiful things, that this urge can be brought out and put to work with proper encouragement, and that suppression of it results in maladjustment”.

Notez bien: ” a routine therapy used in mental hospitals has been to give the patients creative things to do with their hands”. Extracts from “Fascinating Womanhood” by Helen Andelin.

Everybody possesses creativity in him or her waiting to be set free and explored. Don’t think you cannot do it. Don’t think you cannot be the next Computer Guru or Business Tycoon or President. Lesser men have accomplished more.

Interface is here to encourage you and believe in you. We will never suppress your dream no matter how foolish it may seem. For everyone has something good to offer.

Have a lovely weekend and remain creative.
