Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.
Sir Kenneth Robinson (born 4 March 1950) is an English author, speaker and international advisor on education in the arts to government, non-profits, education and arts bodies. He was Director of the Arts in Schools Project (1985–89), Professor of Arts Education at the University of Warwick (1989–2001), and was knighted in 2003 for services to art.
Originally from a working class Liverpool family, Robinson now lives in Los Angeles with his wife Marie-Therese and children James and Kate.
Quotes from Ken Robinson:
If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.
All kids have tremendous talents — and we squander them pretty ruthlessly.
Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.
