Event Navigation

Panellists from the worlds of arts and science will explore the nature of creativity, what are its essential elements, and where the creative spark comes from. How do people conceive novel and original ideas for a sculpture, a musical score or a scientific breakthrough? What is the creative process like? Is exceptional creativity “born” or can it be nurtured? Under what conditions does creativity flourish? And last, but not least, what is the role of creativity in a healthy society? Why do we need it?

With Atom Egoyan, Canadian director (of stage and film), writer, producer and former actor.

Arthur B. McDonald, Professor Emeritus of Physics at Queen’s University and the recipient of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Meaghan Ogilvie, photographer known for her evocative images exploring the movement of the human body underwater and on land.

Panel discussion is followed by a reception in the ArtSpring galleries.
