GSA: Creativity Matters in a crisis
The Glasgow School of Art has launched a new online platform that allows members of its Creative Network to share thoughts, tips and questions on how the creative community can help respond to crisis situations.
Creativity Matters features videos from graduates of the Art School discussing the role of creativity and innovation in challenging times. 1996 Product Design graduate Jamie Jefferson, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder of Equator, highlighted three challenges that designers, innovators and businesses face during a crisis, and suggests ways to move forward. Another video, from 2008 Product Design Engineering graduate Craig Lynn, who is Director and Co-Founder of Filament, talks about how GSA’s Creative Network and the creative community at large can use design thinking to solve problems in crisis situations.
