  • Perception of creative identities by artistic and non-artistic
           individuals: consequences for management

    • Authors: Michał Szostak
      Pages: 1–25 - 1–25
      Abstract: The interdisciplinary research on the perception of creative identities like artists, creators,entrepreneurs, leaders, and managers brings substantial conclusions for understanding the way of thinking, internal features, and motivations of decisions of individuals with and without artistic factor. For this purpose, an international quantitative examination of 160 individuals was undertaken. The research exhibited that individuals with and without artistic identity perceive artists, creators, entrepreneurs, leaders, and managers statistically similar (chi-square test of independence used, p < 0.001). The negative verification of the hypotheses was astonishing and a novelty in the investigated area. The novelty should be seen as an artistic potential existing in each individual. The additional qualitative analysis of the 50 features constituting the investigated identities revealed that individuals with and without artistic identity see particular features of these identities slightly differently (the most important, the least important, and the most equally perceived features were described in detail). The outcomes were discussed with the literature on the subject, confirming most other researchers’ theses and revealing some contradictions and can be used to understand the qualities of artistic identity and the perception of investigated identities by individuals, groups, and societies dominated by persons with and without artistic factors. The applicability of the results is broad, mainly due to the role of artistry in today’s world as potential laying in every individual. Specific triggers should be catalyzed instead of looking for artist-born individuals. The education process of artists should focus on revealing artistic potential underlining the role of inspiration, and discovering the motifs of artistic activity.

  • Theatre and creative communication during COVID-19 pandemic: the case of
           National Kaunas Drama Theatre, Lithuania

    • Authors: Ina Pukelytė
      Pages: 26–3 - 26–3
      Abstract: The article deals with the questions of digital communication and theatre during the lockdown in 2020–2021. With the example of the National Kaunas Drama Theatre, Lithuania, it is revealed that COVID-19 pandemic forced the cultural sector to experiment and use digital products in new conceptual ways. National Kaunas Drama Theatre proposed their audience an online platform Theatre Onl1ne TV (originally in Lithuanian: Teatras Onl1ne TV), and developed performances which were adapted to the digital environment of the lockdown period: some of the performances were transmitted on Zoom Video Communications platform, especially those for children and adolescents, some of them, such as The Flickering, tested new ways of integrating audiences digitally into theatrical action. The latter performance was created for Facebook users, lasted for four evenings and invited them to become co-creators of the story. The analysis reveals that digital theatre communication attracted audiences of younger generations and can be a useful creative tool in developing a relationship with the new generation of theatre-goers.

  • Aspects of creativity in adult animation: an overview of censorship and
           self-censorship in Western countries

    • Authors: Tomas Mitkus
      Pages: 39–4 - 39–4
      Abstract: Today, adult animation is the fastest growing segment in the industry. However, adult animation is also the least researched topic in animation field. In this article, the author explores what key elements hinder the growth in this animation segment with a focus on self-censorship and how it affects modern adult animation creative output and overall production. Also, the author discusses the concept of censorship in animation and its historical development. In other words, the genesis, and then reform of formal censorship systems into the age rating systems. And, while technically, with the abolition of the formal censorship system, today animators can create content of any kind, adult animation in the Western world has only begun to grow relatively recently. This paper investigates the key reasons that motivate self-censorship in animation to exist today, even when all the data shows that never before in the history of this medium, has the adult animation segment had such good conditions to get funded and reach an audience. Additionally, the author examines the concept of mature themes from the perspective of Western censorship apparatus.

  • Criteria for the evaluation of innovativeness of independent film
           production company in the perspective of creativity

    • Authors: Ieva Vitkauskaitė
      Pages: 50–7 - 50–7
      Abstract: This study aims to identify the criteria for evaluating the innovativeness of an independent film production company in the European film market. Innovativeness of a company consists of inputs to innovation and outputs from innovation. It reveals a company’s potential to implement innovations, which are often sources of competitive advantage. The empirical study involved 29 experts from the European film industry and film production companies. Experts were asked to evaluate 60 criteria in total. The survey results suggest that a company’s innovativeness can currently be evaluated by 51 criteria, of which 15 are the most important. The criteria identified for evaluating a company’s innovativeness are ranked in order of importance for determining a company’s innovativeness. The results obtained allow us to evaluate the innovativeness of a company by comparing independent film production companies with one another in the European film market and thus to determine which company is more innovative. It also makes possible new hypotheses to be raised, analysed and tested. It should be noted that the article was written based on a dissertation in progress.

  • Creating claustrophobia in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk

    • Authors: Viktorija Lankauskaitė
      Pages: 79–9 - 79–9
      Abstract: Christopher Nolan’s cinema and its immersive quality is appreciated by audiences and critics alike, and already analysed by researchers, often mentioning “claustrophobia” as a feeling encountered in his films. However, a number of extensive explorations of his work, and filmmaking in general, leave the creation of claustrophobia in cinema undiscussed. Thus, the article aims to fill the gap and investigate his 2017’s film Dunkirk, since this account of the historical event during the World War II has often been described as “claustrophobic”. Cinematic space and time, the way the medium can be used to create certain feelings, as well as the properties of Nolan’s work are examined. Space and time manipulation, the use of IMAX for immersion, interchanging aspect ratios, and the idea of contrasts are responsible for the claustrophobic atmosphere in the film. The study could be useful for filmmakers and creatives, as well as for audiences interested in what shapes their experience of the story they see on screen.

  • Theoretical presumptions of the creative industries innovation
           productivity performance

    • Authors: Deimantė Krisiukėnienė, Vaida Pilinkienė
      Pages: 91–1 - 91–1
      Abstract: The development of the concept of creative industries is related to the contribution of culture and creativity to the economy. Creative industries are often associated with innovation.Scientific literature reveals that creative business is more innovative compared to other sectors of the economy. Some authors also note that when assessing the level of innovation, the companies that are closely related to creative industries tend to have higher innovation rates. The concept of creativity is closely related to the major purpose of innovation, i.e. problem solving, while synergy between creativity and economy formulates creative industries theory. Based on the literature, problem solution requires creativity, and some solutions can inspire the emergence of innovation. The major purpose of this article is to provide the theoretical presumptions of the creative industries innovation productivity performance. Applying the method of comparative literature analysis, this article presents a conceptual model that allows to evaluate and compare countries economies in terms of the productivity in the creative industries innovation performance.

  • Concept creation in action: Internet space as a meteorological pressure

    • Authors: Gytis Dovydaitis
      Pages: 108– - 108–
      Abstract: The spatiality of the Internet is a complex phenomenon presupposing a wide range of ideas: that there are different environments which can be characterized, that there are subjects moving within them, that these spaces are being employed for certain ends by their users, and much more. However, various spatial descriptions of the Internet most of the time observe it as a part of a larger spatial architecture, not as a spatial architecture itself. This paper employs radical concept creation machinery conceptualized by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in What Is Philosophy' (first published in 1991), principles of paralogistic thinking proposed by Jean-François Lyotard and divergent thinking methods, finally arriving at a new conceptualization of the Internet space as the meteorological pressure system. This is an invitation to see the Internet and movements occurring within it from a new perspective: where temperatures rise and drop, winds blow and dissipate, fogs come and go; where limits of spatial characteristics are forming different climates; where each part affects the whole, and can potentially bring out various chain reactions. Such a conceptual system opens up the possibility to see the Internet as a coherent spatial structure, filled with becomings and intricate relationships.

  • Creativity as an experience and as a complexity: visual-narrative research
           of the artworks of Tsipy Amos Goldstein

    • Authors: Shahar Marnin-Distelfeld
      Pages: 125– - 125–
      Abstract: This article focuses on the work Seven Private Skies (initiated in 2009) by the Israeli artist, Tsipy Amos Goldstein. This is a series of large panels on which the artist has been painting and embroidering for fourteen years as her main occupation. The aim of the study was to establish the meanings inherent in the work, which is a kind of multi-layered cryptograph, while characterizing it in terms of creativity. The research method combined visual-interpretive analysis with both a narrative-feminist paradigm and with theories from the field of creativity studies. The findings showed that the series “tells” through artistic means the artist’s personal story in a way that matches two definitions: creativity as an experience and creativity as a complexity. The article will discuss the characteristics of the artist and artwork as an experience and then will present the paradoxes distinguishing the work as complex: 1. Order versus chaos; 2. Love and home in the face of disintegration; 3. Cuts versus connections and male versus female; 4. Understandable communication in the face of conflicting messages; 5. Star of David versus the Jewish yellow badge.

  • The cultural criticism of Lewis Mumford and the creative city planning as
           an answer to the ecological crisis of modern civilisation

    • Authors: Gábor Kovács
      Pages: 145– - 145–
      Abstract: The book of young Lewis Mumford (1895–1990) entitled Sticks and Stones: A Study of American Architecture and Civilization (first published in 1924) is a condensed version of his philosophy of city and a research program completed in his rich oeuvre. The title is telling: the starting point of Mumford is the idea that the architecture of a city is an objectified presentation of the value-system of the given civilisation. Stick and stones are not only sticks and stones: the material infrastructure is an embodiment of the values of civilisation, which are the basic motivating factors behind human actions. In other words: city is a mirror of civilisation; if the observer decodes the message encoded in sticks and stones, he/she gets the value-structure of the civilisation having produced the city. However, there is a mutual interdependence: human beings living in the city are not only passive possessors of a heritage determining one-sidedly their actions but they modify and restructure urban spaces: sticks and stones form our values, at the same time our values influence the concrete arrangement of sticks and stones. Creative city-planning is vital important. It gives possibility for the redirection of a civilisation’s future historical way. At the same time, creativity, in Mumford’s interpretation, does not mean the profit-generating capacity of the city; it has to serve the well-being of all citizens.

  • Creative economy and the quintuple helix innovation model: a critical
           factors study in the context of regional development

    • Authors: Ariele Rodrigues-Ferreira, Herlander Afonso, José André Mello, Rebeca Amaral
      Pages: 158– - 158–
      Abstract: Creative economy is the area of knowledge that explores the intangible and symbolic aspects and feeds on creative talents, individually and/or collectively organized, in order to produce creative goods and services. This type of economy has its own dynamics, and it disturbs the traditional economic models. This study investigated creative economy comprehensively and aims to analyze the critical factors inherent in the dynamics of creative economy for regional development, considering the helix model of innovation (quintuple helix innovation model), aligned with entrepreneurship and innovation. To this end, the methodology used was systematized exploratory research, treated within three dimensions – the economic-financial, the socio-anthropological, and the techno-innovative. The conclusion of the study was the identification of fifteen critical factors, the direct creative economy relationship with the quintuple helix innovation model in all its helixes, as well as its “Mode 3” of the dynamics of knowledge generation, creation, and dissemination. The study also highlighted the importance of creative economy as one of the “engines” of regional development, in an economic, financial, social, technological, and sustainable way, driven by the government, its networks, and its actors.

    • Authors: Samer Ayasrah, Mutawakil Obeidat, Qutaibeh Katatbeh, Abdalrahman Aljarrah, Mohammed-Ali Al-Akhras
      Pages: 178– - 178–
      Abstract: Creativity is essential for survival and it is the path to progress and prosperity. Their creativity, innovation, invention and leadership measure the progress and development of nations.Creative thinking is one of the finest and highest skills and abilities that should be acquired by students in all different academic levels. The main objective of this study is to disclose the extent of practicing creative thinking and its relationship to academic achievement among students of the Jordan University of Science and Technology. The study was conducted on a sample of 1159 male and female students, who were chosen randomly. The study involved the following main question: To what extent are students of Jordan University of Science and Technology practicing creative thinking' It also contained three hypotheses: 1) There is a significant difference of practicing creative thinking among the students of Jordan University of Science and Technology due to gender; 2) There is a significant difference of practicing creative thinking among students of Jordan University of Science and Technology due to academic year; 3) There is a significant correlation between practicing creative thinking among students of Jordan University of Science and Technology and academic achievement. The results of the study indicated that students of Jordan University of Science and Technology are practicing creative thinking at a moderate level reaching 2.96 at Likert scale. Moreover, it revealed that there is a statistically significant difference in the level of practicing creative thinking due to gender favoring male students. A close relationship between the level of practicing creative thing and academic achievement was found, where 20% of the research sample having high academic achievement showed moderate level of practicing creative thinking.

  • A comparison study from a creative thinking perspective in different
           domains as art education and non-art education students

    • Authors: Kani Ulger
      Pages: 193– - 193–
      Abstract: Creative thinking measurement for everyone in different domains is the most crucial critical subject. Therefore, the current discussion continues whether creativity in various fields different.This study aimed to measurement the students’ creative thinking scores in various domains disciplines to reveal differences. The main research question was as followed: Do whether students’creative thinking scores of students in art and non-art education differ significantly' The method was a causal-comparative research design. Participant students (N = 456, meanage = 16–21) were equivalent regarding some variations; as education disciplines and ages. While however, the art and non-art education students were the domain-specific was art education students, the and domaingeneral,was non-art education students respectively. The present study determined a significant difference between domain-specific and domain-general on creative thinking scores in favor of the non-art education students in the range of ages 16 to 21. The study concluded that alternative instruments with domain-specific content needed to measure individuals’ creative thinking in the domain-specific. This study suggested future research to conduct creativity measurement comparatively individuals in different age ranges and domains fields.

  • Creativity of students in favour of their entrepreneurial intentions:
           empirical evidence from Poland

    • Authors: Krzysztof Wach, Svitlana Bilan
      Pages: 211– - 211–
      Abstract: The article aims to empirically verify the impact of creativity on students’ entrepreneurial intentions using a theoretical framework of the enhanced theory of planned behaviour of Icek Ajzen. The primary research tool was a survey conducted among students (n = 719) of several universities in Kraków, Poland. Statistical calculations of multiple regression positively verified the hypothesis that students’ creativity strengthens their entrepreneurial intentions to start their own business. The model has a strong predictive power (R2 = 65.3%). University teaching should be focused more on unleashing students’ creativity to boost entrepreneurial intentions of students, then to transpose into startups, and then eventually to support the competitiveness of the economy. This article’s novel contribution is to confirm that social norms in Poland do not play an essential role in stimulating entrepreneurial intentions despite numerous affirmations to this factor in other countries.

  • Creativity and innovation in the design of public service announcements:
           classification and design models

    • Authors: Nataliia Skliarenko, Ivan Gryshchenko, Olena Kolosnichenko, Natalia Ostapenko, Marina Kolosnichenko
      Pages: 225– - 225–
      Abstract: In the study, we analyzed the relationship between creativity and innovation in the design of public service announcements. Their synthesis became the basis for the creation of dynamic visual communications that changed the perception of social message. Using widely known examples of public service announcements, we rethought the content and project features of such phenomenon as public service announcement from a design point of view. We consider innovative public service announcement as a set of dynamic processes which are based on different types of interactions. Therefore, we put a focus on the integration of visual communications with the environment and, moreover, with a human being as an integral part of the information message. The study resulted in the classification of innovations in modern social advertising, which is based on creative experiments related to composition, human sensory sensations, communication and environmental technology. It has been proven that the creation of creative artistic images is based on universal design models, formed as a result of the synthesis of design thinking and innovation and, therefore, they are suitable for solving a wide range of social problems. The study substantiates the system of strategic goals for the development of innovative public service announcements which are aimed at sustainable development of society.

  • Reimagining careers in unpropitious creative fields through the
           meta-creativity of alternative creativity: implications for the music

    • Authors: Lauren Moxey, Ryan Daniel
      Pages: 241– - 241–
      Abstract: Work by Abraham Maslow and others has proposed that a reasonable degree of fulfilment of various human needs is required for an individual to experience positive wellbeing. Given that an individual’s occupation provides vital financial, social, emotional, and cognitive resources, it is a key determinant of the degree to which their human needs are fulfilled. Some fields of work, such as music, can be described as unpropitious due to the unfavorable conditions awaiting skilled creators who seek to establish a full-time career; consequently, the human needs of such individuals may remain compromised. Alternative creativity is proposed as a type of meta-creativity that supports creative approaches to creative practice, and offers a new conceptual approach to careers in unpropitious creative fields. Alternative creativity provides hope for the many highly skilled musicians who exist in a state of perpetual career uncertainty, freeing them from the heavy burden of unrealistic expectations and the ensuing sense of failure that emerges when these expectations cannot be met. Ultimately, alternative creativity offers musicians the opportunity to reconceptualize and develop their creative practice while maintaining positive wellbeing through the fulfilment of their human needs.

  • Intercultural stereotypes and the role of critical and creative thinking
           in overcoming them

    • Authors: Justinas Braslauskas
      Pages: 255– - 255–
      Abstract: Intercultural stereotypes often lead to misunderstandings or even cultural conflicts in communication, as they interfere with the rational assessment of individuals from one national culture and the products, perspectives and practices associated with them. Although there is a considerable literature on stereotypes in general and on intercultural stereotypes in particular, there is clearly insufficient scholarly works to provide concrete and conceptual insights into how to minimise or overcome stereotypical attitudes in practice. For example, the role of critical and creative thinking in the process of devisualisation of stereotypes has not been adequately assessed in the academic literature. Researchers have so far paid little attention for it in their works. This work aims to fill the aforementioned gaps in the scientific discourse. The object of this article is intercultural stereotypes in the context of the link between critical and creative thinking. The aim of the article is to analyse the theoretical aspects of intercultural stereotypes and the role of critical and creative thinking in overcoming them. The work first analyses the theoretical aspects of stereotypes in the context of intercultural communication, and then examines the nuances of the role of critical and creative thinking in overcoming intercultural stereotypes. The role of critical and creative thinking in the process of overcoming intercultural stereotypes is explored by discussing the link between critical and creative thinking, as well as the importance of the application of teaching methods for critical and creative thinking skills in the process of devisualisation of stereotypes. The following research methods are used in order to implement the aim of the article: analysis and synthesis of scientific literature.

      Abstract: Creativity is fundamental to the overall progress of humanity and hence identified as a key competence required for being successful in the 21st century. Teaching that nurtures creativity helps not only to unfold children’s creative potential but also to enhance the effectiveness of teaching. The essential step in helping teachers to learn the principles of creativity nurturing pedagogy is to measure creativity nurturing behaviour for teachers and develop it through training. Assessment of teachers’ ability to nurture creativity is much needed. In this research we measured the creativity nurturing behaviour of 2006 teachers from various countries across global with creativity nurturing behaviour scale for teachers and analyzed the four-factor model’s reliability, validity and measurement invariance across gender and countries. The following values were obtained: Cronbach’s alpha (0.75, 0.70, 0.72, 0.79), composite reliability (0.76, 0.72, 0.701, 0.784), configural invariance (comparative fit index: 0.913, root mean square error of approximation: 0.063 and standardized root mean square residual: 0.662), metric invariance (obtained value in comparative fit index: 0.912, root mean square error of approximation: 0.061 and standardized root mean square residual: 0.52) and scalar invariance (obtained value in comparative fit index: 0.909, root mean square error of approximation: 0.064 and standardized root mean square residual: 0.7). The results of the study show that creativity nurturing behaviour scale for teachers is a valid and reliable scale which is invariant across gender and countries. Hence, the scale can be administered to measure the creativity nurturing behaviour of teachers and its results can be employed to identify the developmental needs of teachers to foster creativity in the classroom. This first scale for teachers is translated into Hindi, Arabic, Spanish, English, Turkish, and Persian.

    • Authors: Sofya Komarova, Frashia Ndungu, Alessia Gavazzoli, Roberta Mineo
      Pages: 297– - 297–
      Abstract: Modern society demands innovativeness and creativity. Few studies have examined group dynamics’ influence on individuals’ creativity. This study explores creativity in group settings and how the gender of participants influences group dynamics and the creative process by observing specific behaviors, including social interaction and play, creative action, and creative thinking. In groups of three, thirty participants (20–25 years) were asked to create mosaics representing a “learning community” using Lego DOTS. Relationships between group dynamics and creativity, creative thinking and creative action, gender of participants and their orientation to creativity and group dynamics were explored. Results showed negative relationships between group processes, creative thinking, and creative actions: the more intense the group dynamics were, the less the creativity. Surprisingly, female participants were more oriented to the creative task; male participants were more oriented to group dynamics. Further investigation of the relationship between creativity and cultural stereotypes on gender roles is needed.

    • Authors: Farouq Ahmad Faleh Alazzam, Mueen Fandi Nhar Alshunnaq
      Pages: 315– - 315–
      Abstract: The main purpose of the study is to determine the principal ways of forming creative thinking among lawyers in their practice in modern conditions of development under the influence of COVID-19 pandemic. The importance of studying creative thinking and its formation is determined because the study of this problem creates the basis for the formation of a psychological attitude towards the creative development of a personality, which will be able to effectively solve non-standard problems of legal science and practice. The leading direction of training a future lawyer is the disclosure and activation of creative potential. In this process, focus on the attitudinal sphere of the personality is because it determines the activation of professional creativity and contributes to the disclosure of the creative potential of a specialist. As a result of the study and the application of the proposed methodology, the main stages were identified to promote the development of creative potential and thinking among lawyers in modern conditions of development, considering the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. The proposed research results may have a practical aspect of implementation in the activities of a modern lawyer.

  • The way of enforcing the cultural rights of prisoners in the Polish and
           Hungarian prisons: the aspects of creativity

    • Authors: Márta Miklósi, Daria Becker-Pestka, Attila Károly Molnár
      Pages: 328– - 328–
      Abstract: Education in Polish and Hungarian penitentiaries aims at the successful social reintegration of prisoners. Penitentiary institutions support prisoners by education of primary, secondary, and vocational training. Forms of learning within prisons prepare prisoners for release and integration into the labour market. This study aims to review the most important concepts and possible interpretations of criminal pedagogy and the cultural life of prisons. We present the main cultural rights of prisoners (learning opportunities, community cultural opportunities) and their impact on prisoners, as well as highlighting the aspects that make prison a total institution. We present the goals of cultural life in prison and the current training process covering key areas. We state that cultural activities in prison are essential parts of reintegration, bringing prisoners closer to the cultural nature of the outside world. With this article, comparatively on the two countries, we would like to draw attention to the diversity and feasibility of cultural transmission for prisoners.

      Abstract: The main purpose of the study is to model the process of managing the creative development of the socio-economic system in the conditions of influence of COVID-19 pandemic. For this, we have applied the methodology of functional modeling and graphical display, which includes the possibility of structural analysis and serves as effective information technology for any control system. Socio-economic systems are a large number of complex organizational structures with a large number of management processes. The largest of these are companies and organizations with appropriate personnel, on which it depends on where the company will move. It is impossible to compete without creative development. For an illustrative example, we used the current socioeconomic system in the form of a company, in which creativity and creative development play an important role. As a result, we reflected how, through a convenient and easy-to-use model, it is possible to form clear steps and stages that would informatively reflect creative development for the socio-economic system (company).

      Abstract: Although the creative city concept has received much criticism, the creative movement still occurs to fight for a better city. The decline in the terracotta tile business in Jatiwangi, Majalengka Regency, West Java, Indonesia, has triggered a creative movement to revitalize their identity through the Terracotta City movement. By combining Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s field of creativity and Pierre Bourdieu’s cultural capital, this study is carried out to reveal the creative culture of terracotta tile entrepreneurs in Jatiwangi and its relation to the movement. It is found that entrepreneurs’ creative culture is dominantly stimulated by economic capital, and then it is transformed into cultural capital. Innovations are only made, if the market share is clear since it bears economic risks. However, social capital has a role in transforming entrepreneurs’ economic and cultural capital to accept innovation and product diversification. This study also reveals that entrepreneurs as adopters intend to initiate innovation and diversification of terracotta products. However, within the framework of innovation, it shows that creative culture plays a role in incorporating aspects of humanity into innovation activities by giving innovation efforts to represent human beings.
