16º Premio Doy-Ostia: SIR KEN ROBINSON

Sir KEN ROBINSON explores education, creativity, human possibility and the magic point at which natural talent meets personal passion - finding the thing that resonates with you that leads to personal success.

- The following talk explores ways to connect peoples' natural aptitudes with their personal passions to achieve at their highest levels in education and business.

"The basis of my argument is: creativity isn’t a specific activity; it’s a quality of things we do. You can be creative in anything — in math, science, engineering, philosophy — as much as you can in music or in painting or in dance. And you can certainly be involved in the arts in ways that are especially creative. And so it’s important to emphasize that it’s not about creating some small space in schools where people can be creative, and particularly not if that means just tacking on some art programs on a Friday afternoon. It’s about the way we do things."

- Rhode Island School of Design Lecture

"... if you want to encourage creativity in education, there are a couple of ways to think about it. One is that there are skills of creative thinking that can be taught. I think of this as general creativity. You can help them think productively, generate ideas effectively, help them to think of alternative approaches to issues and questions. So there are very specific skills that can be taught, and in a metaphorical sense, it’s kind of like a grammar of creativity. It’s a series of processes, not an event. And helping people understand how that works is an important part of being creative. You wouldn’t expect people to become literate just by hoping it’d happen."

- Huckabee interview

"There was a time when people argued seriously that it was difficult to teach working class people to read and write — that they didn’t have the capacity for it. This was before the beginning of public education. But now we know that most people — we take it as axiomatic and ethically important that most people can be taught to read or write. But they have to be taught. They have to be given tools and techniques for it."

- Creative Company Conference Interview

He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 for his outstanding achievements in education and the arts.
