"About the importance of creativity and art for our (healthy) development
Art and creativity promote our development and strengthen our potential - that is
meanwhile more than proven. And yet, this is the case in our heavily “brainy” society
not yet really arrived. Still, a lot has happened. The creative promotion of
Children have become very important. And not in companies either
insignificant sums invested in order to gain access to a purely analytically thinking person
to enable a broader spectrum of perception and action. There you have them now
The advantages of “creative minds” have long been recognized.
Being able to think creatively doesn't have to mean being creatively gifted - those are two completely
different pairs of shoes. Being able to think creatively means seeing complex relationships
and to be able to grasp them intuitively - ideally. In our society that is
Unfortunately, the potential of the mind is seriously overrated. It has long been researched that
"Masterpieces" and great inventions are not his merit, but above all to intuition
and based on a broad spectrum of perception.
The preoccupation with art and creative activities activates important areas in the brain. And ever
the sooner you start, the better. Art and creativity expand our horizons and
create new connections in our brain - until the end of life. So it's never closed
late for breathing a breath of fresh air into his upper room - and with it a new one
To create a world of experience and experience. It is not for nothing that those who tend to be more rational, very
successful people have always enjoyed being surrounded by art and artists. The mind alone
just doesn't make us happy ...
Thank goodness art and creativity are no longer privileges of the upper ones
More social classes - at least not in this country. Everyone has access to it, whether with a little
or a lot of household budget. Creative therapy is an elementary building block in the treatment of
mental illnesses and life crises - be it a temporary depression,
Burnout or severe emotional trauma. By the way, many artists are therefore
so gifted creatively, because her art reveals her own healing path. I want to
be honest at this point and say that it was and is no different for me. And that's why
It is also very important to me to write about the importance of creativity and art.
Some may not be able to see the connections clearly. Or they don't want it, whatever
is perfectly okay. Not every art lover wants to be confronted with difficult topics,
when he dedicates himself to his passion. And that's understandable too. But there are others too
People who are very interested in these relationships. And also for how to be creative
and can use art for yourself and others to understand yourself better and in more positive ways
To be able to develop further.
Since I've been professionally artistically active myself, it has been very important to me one day
To be able to pass on to disadvantaged children what I have experienced myself: the enormous
transformative power of creative work! With children this is even more effective than with us
Adults - no matter how difficult their previous experiences may have been. you
can accept and integrate the "offer" behind creativity much faster than we can
Adult. You can get involved with it better, allow yourself to be carried, nourished and strengthened by it.
And it is wonderful to see how fruitful working with children can be!
When we talk about education, we should always keep in mind that education is not
should only go to information input that prepares people to society
to serve. Education means that we contribute to a person's individual personality
can discover and develop in the best possible way - without being influenced too much to
meet certain requirements or expectations. So just the opposite of
what we are experiencing here in the western world, which is fully geared towards that
to maintain the existing economic system. Realize that this cannot be entirely correct
we look at the severely overwhelmed children who have been clamoring through diagnoses such as
ADD / ADHD want to be heard. And also in the numbers of burn-out and depression
sick adolescents and adults, which has been rising steadily for two decades. According to WHO
Incidentally, depression will take second place on the list of the most common diseases in 2020 -
and that worldwide.
Do I want to say at this point that creativity and art can save the world? No that
I definitely don't want to. But I want to say that there is an opposite pole and an opposing force to it
to the things that make us sick. And it doesn't matter whether it's for us Europeans or for people
in the third world: dealing with creativity and art can be more meaningful and helpful,
as chemical pills with strong side effects whose only aim is to get us out of our suffering
and divert our worries. "
