TED Talk Thursday – David Kelley: How to build your creative confidence

According to ted.com: “Is your school or workplace divided into “creatives” versus practical people? Yet surely, David Kelley suggests, creativity is not the domain of only a chosen few. Telling stories from his legendary design career and his own life, he offers ways to build the confidence to create… (From The Design Studio session at TED2012, guest-curated by Chee Pearlman and David Rockwell.)”

“David Kelley’s company IDEO helped create many icons of the digital generation — but what matters even more to him is unlocking the creative potential of people and organizations to innovate routinely.”

Enjoy!

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com:

“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”

TED Talk Thursdays – Pilobolus Perform “Symbiosis”

According to TED.com: For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery of them from www.ted.com:

I’ve been focusing the last few weeks on TED Talks on creative arts themes. Last week we looked at the new street dance forms growing around the globe, TED Talk Thursdays – The LXD: In the Internet age, dance evolves, and today I’d like to introduce you to, one of my favorite groups, Pilobolus. According to TED:

Pilobolus began as an experiment among three guys and one puzzled professor in a Dartmouth dance class back in 1970. It was survival of the giddiest, as the three non-dancers goofed around with the material they’d been given — themselves — and got entangled in science-inspired poses (think: “soft-belly protoplasmic thing”) and movements. From these humble, biological beginnings has emerged an innovative, unlikely and almost-uncategorizable dance company that combines athleticism, grace and humor with a profound sense of unity.

There really aren’t words to describe what Pilobolus does, except to say it is creativity itself. I hope you enjoy this performance.
