The question ‘Why am I not creative?’ troubles many of us. Creativity is seen as a mysterious talent owned by a select few.
Dare to Connect seeks to rectify this very myth, and looks at what creativity actually is, as well as its social and economic standing in the modern world.
Author Victoria Krundysheva, who is also a conceptual fashion photographer, looks at what may drive individuals’ internal motivations: a search for self-understanding as well as self-expression.
Apart from probing elementary questions like ‘What evolutionary purpose does creativity serve?’ and ‘Where does it disappear as we grow older?’, the book also enlists specific barriers that may block our inherent creative abilities. As a follow-up, it suggests tools to overcome these barriers, as well as personal techniques for practising creative thinking.
