The creative industries houses students from a variety of disciplines including animation, photography, graphic design, screen and acting. Although these disciplines have distinctive skills sets, one thing that is common is the ability to think creatively. Creative is a recent buzzword where the non-creative disciplines are staking their claim on how can these skills be transferred? Everything is a story and performance. Why do these buzzwords not focus our attention and disciplines? We have identified four key areas of the creative industries: Communication: through various methods, modes and deliveries; Agility and shifting perception: Adaptability and looking at multiple angles to achieve an outcome, particularly in discipline, cross-discipline and trans-disciplinary ways; Transformation: transforming and developing artistically and personally. Questioning; question what students do, question what educators do, and question to find our own ‘truths’. After a demonstration outlining these points, and how they relate to the creative industries, participants will be taken through a workshop that explores different modes of creative thinking and the concept of ‘learning by doing’ and above all, thinking creatively. Knowledge is in the ‘cloud’; it is incoherent and only through ‘lines of flight’ from the brief interactions between the departure and landing of concepts do we briefly comprehend grander schemes (Deleuze and Guattari 1987).
