Is your inner creative genius a little out of focus? Sometimes a 20-minute inspiring lecture is just enough to give you a completely new perspective on a specific topic.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. It’s the name of a conference that has been held in California every year since 1984, and has become famous for posting the videos of its interdisciplinary talks freely on the Internet in the spirit of Open Education. Today there are many offshoots of the actual conference worldwide on various topics, such as technology or medicine.
Here you will find a list of TED talks on creativity and art that I found interesting and inspiring. So grab yourself some coffee or tea and enjoy!
I will keep adding more TED talks on creativity in the future to this list, so make sure to bookmark and revisit it.
