What even is "creativity"?

Creativity is most often thought of in terms of art or craft, but it is much more than that!

It can be using your original ideas to create an invention, an idea, a theory, or even a joke, seeing things from a different perspective, or using your imagination to create something. 

Did you know it is possible to increase your creativity?  Like any other skill, it can be developed with practice. LinkedIn Learning, available for free with your Yarra Plenty Regional Library membership, has bootcamps, training, and learning ideas that can help you increase your creativity, and improve your business, your making, or your life.
