Many human cognitive capacities and processes may be deployed creatively, from unique choices made for oneself up through novel cultural shifts. Similarly, large swaths of our daily lives are taken up with performing spontaneous, on-the-fly, and unplanned activities that are, in a word, improvised. Charting out the nature of both creativity and improvisation, taken individually or together, remains an open and pressing issue. In this conference, we will delve into various philosophical, theoretical, empirical, and interdisciplinary issues that are related to creativity and improvisation. A non-exhaustive list of related questions and themes for this topic include:
- What is the relationship between improvisation and creativity?
- What is the relationship between creative activity and well-being?
- What is the best way to model individual and collective creativity?
- Is creativity in the arts the same thing as in other domains, such as in science or business?
- What are the pros and cons of different scientific operationalizations of creativity and improvisation?
- Provide a conceptual analysis of creativity and/or improvisation.
