Creativity: Why we cannot afford to ignore it

The future labour market is being fundamentally reshaped through automation and artificial intelligence, so why are we not doing more to balance our obsession with the ‘traditional’ over the ‘creative’?

The gatekeepers of curriculum design and delivery can no longer be allowed to ignore that creativity is an integral part of shaping young lives and is crucial in preparing young people for their careers, regardless of the route they take. Film and the moving image offers an exciting and engaging way to bring creative education to the classroom.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to listen to Oscar® winning film director Asif Kapadia talk about how important creative education has been to his film career, and hear from experts who excel in non-creative industries on why they believe creativity – particularly through film and moving image – is so important no matter what path in life you take.
