David Shields, Author of Reality Hunger: A Manifesto
Creative thinking is central to innovations and breakthroughs achieved in fields that extend beyond the arts. Through the lens of the key focal points of public life, we’ll hear how people from different fields approach their work with creative, and even artistic, purpose.
