Killing Creativity: Are Schools or Parents to Blame?

If we’re all born with creative potential, why do many children lose their inventive tendencies as they grow older? What role does organized education play? This program observes a group of 25 seven-year-olds and their families in order to study childhood creativity, why it frequently fades, and why it matters. Exploring the impact of school and whether or not it dampens the creative impulse, the program looks at ways adults can encourage and promote imagination, curiosity, and originality. In addition, the children take part in activities that reveal the precarious state of their natural ingenuity. They are asked to draw a man who could not possibly exist, to address Santa Claus through a live web link, and to examine, if they dare, a “monster in a box.” A BBC/Open University Co-production. Original broadcast title: Killing Creativity. Part of the series Child of Our Time 2007. (60 minutes)
