At the 2012 ALIA Queensland Mini-Conference: Innovate, Evolve, Create, I gave a keynote on creativity. This presentation was a reflective exploration creativity – what it means to be creative, why creativity is important, and how we can cultivate it. These are my slides from the presentation, and some resources that I referred to.
I referred to a couple of different TED talks during my presentation. These were:
We talked about libraries as incubator spaces (and I gave a really inarticulate response to a question on how we can be incubators and whether this is a new role for us) and I referred vaguely to “this awesome blog post”. Here are the very awesome things I was referring to.
A delegate mentioned LibraryHack as an example of libraries as incubators. Perfect example! You can find out more about LibraryHack on their website, or watch the playlist of videos related to LibraryHack created by a QUT Master of Information Technology (Library and Information Studies) (MIT LIS) student and myself.
Finally, here’s Little Red Riding Hood mashup video I mentioned (created by MIT LIS student Katya Henry).
