Fire, ink and play: developing 'creativity' for lifelong learning

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The ‘Fire, Ink & Play’ Workshop provided an opportunity for preservice teachers to participate in a cross-cultural arts-based program. It also provided the preservice teachers with a safe environment where teachers could open spaces for ‘creativity’ to exist and be encouraged in a ‘spirit of creative play’. This approach to ‘creativity’ requires an open and risk-taking attitude but it has the potential to develop personal characteristics such as flexibility, fluidity, elaboration and originality (Torrance, 1974).
