This report surveys the core concept of creativity. It sets out an original way to disentangle the range and variety of theories and understandings of the concept. Most of us use the word ‘creativity’ or ‘creative’ casually with a range of different meanings. However, the key insight of this report is that it is helpful to understand the term in its historical and social context. The report was produced for Creative Partnerships in 2006. This organisation aimed to develop schoolchildren’s potential, ambition, creativity and imagination, by building sustainable partnerships between schools, creative and cultural organisations and individuals, which impact on learning.
