Sir Ken Robinson dedicated his life to transforming the culture of education and organisations with a richer conception of human creativity and intelligence. He advised governments, corporations, education systems, and some of the world’s leading cultural organizations on the development of education, creativity and innovation.
A passionate advocate for the diversity of human potential, he questioned the systems that we have come to take for granted and their respective roles in either encouraging or suppressing the very core of what makes us human – our innate powers of imagination and creativity. His firm contention was that a vibrant and healthy society depends on a huge variety of talents and interests, and that it is in our common interest to cultivate them. In 2019, Sir Ken wrote that “we don’t live in the world as other creature’s do, we create the worlds that we live in.”
One of the great tragedies of his death is that there has never been a more important time for this message. We continue to find ourselves at a shared crossroads as we collectively try to navigate one of the most turbulent periods of living history. Sir Ken advised that in our effort to “return to normal” we should be re-evaluating what type of normal we want to return to. As we create the worlds that we live in, it is within our power to recreate them if we harness our innate powers of imagination, creativity, and collaboration.
