Jim Davies knows creativity. A cognitive scientist, he’s the director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory at Carleton University, in Ottawa Ontario. He’s been called the next Malcolm Gladwell and he’s used scientific findings to explain everything from how we portray aliens on TV to why religion makes us feel one with the universe. He’s also a professional artist, swing dancer, calligraphist and published author who is usually working on 5 books at once. He’ll help us understand the systems that make creativity possible. He’ll also share the personal strategies he puts in place to ensure no idea ever goes to waste.
