Welcome to Creative Lies – our very first video series. Right here is the first of 10 videos debunking lies and misunderstandings that surround the world of creativity. Many of these are downright damaging and prevent people from expressing their ideas and using their creative abilities to the full.

So this series is all about giving these harmful myths the thorough kicking they deserve

We all have the ability to come up with creative ideas

The first episode addresses the lie that only a few special people are born creative. It may be that some people are born with more ability to be creative – in the same way as some people are born with more athletic physiques – but we all have the ability to come up with creative ideas.

So enough of your “Oh no! I’m not creative!” nonsense. We’re ALL creative. And this site is here to help you release it.

Enough of your 'Oh no! I'm not creative!' nonsense. We're ALL creative.Click To Tweet
