MSc course module

Creativity and transportation

Explore the nature of creativity and its relationship to human development and growth.

  • What is creativity?
  • How does it aid personal growth?
  • Does being creative make us happier?
  • How and why may creativity change people’s lives for the better?
  • How can I boost my own creativity?
  • And how can I bring creative exercises into my work?

In Creativity and Transportation we examine the psychosomatic dynamics at work in any creative process, focusing in particular on arts-based practices, such as creative writing, spontaneous sketching and drawing, and movement and voice improvisation. The practices are contextualised within the history and philosophy of arts movements, the psychology of creativity & creative therapies.

We explore the various arts therapies and arts & health approaches available in the UK today. Different theories of creativity and transformation are considered, with a particular focus on ideas pertaining to ritual, spiritual practice and transpersonal psychology.
