I gave a talk at Moseley Exchange tonight (27 Nov 2012). It was billed as being about the Creative Industries but actually I had begun to prep something that was more about me. In the end I gave a lengthy talk (circa 70 mins) entitled ‘The Creative Economy and Me’.
It was partly an excuse to talk about the research I am working on at the moment that is dealing with ideas of ‘Creative Citizenship’ but I also wanted to talk about my own history and the ways in which my work-life had connected to aspects of creativity and the creative economy.
So to show this I created some graphs to show my work history as set against:
+ creativity (points at which I had created stuff; usually photographs, short films or journalism):
I thought this an interesting way to plot my work history.
I didn’t record the talk and am reluctant to post up the rest of the slides because I was quite chuffed with it and may re-deliver it to other audiences at some point.
