First, we will define the essence of creativity: an ingredient that can turn a usual activity into a creative task. We will do this through experiencing and analysing a simple creative task, and through examining what some creative thinkers and researchers say about the essence of creativity. Then, we will experience different types of this ingredient in a variety of creative language tasks. Some of these will be based on objects, others on pictures or a poem. But all of them will also be based on you. By the end of this talk, you will be able to turn usual activities into creative tasks.
