An interesting interview on Radio New Zealand this past Saturday with Chair of Cinema Art + Science at Columbia College Chicago, Bruce Sheridan. He is the fourth Creative Fellow for the University of Auckland’s Creative Thinking Project, delivering a series of lectures.
He talks about reintegrating science and art in education and industry, and also clarifies what ‘art’ and ‘creativity’ mean to us.
About 12 minutes in, he starts to talk about how to be creative, collaboratively and how this is going to be crucial in the near future. To us, this seems to fit in perfectly with the idea that in our schools we are teaching the Key Competencies with a focus on how important these are.
From around 30 minutes, the discussion turns to failure and how this can lead to success. Bruce Sheridan say “All education can build in ways for it to be safe to fail.”
We believe Discovery Time is one perfect place to do this.
