Abstract

This study proposed a new way of thinking about creativity to make it more applicable to public health services and the increasing demands being placed on them. It offers theoretically supported ways of leading and participating in creative practice, and provides a platform for investigating creativity and innovation at multiple levels in organisations. The study also added to knowledge of arts-based research, in particular providing an innovative and evocative account of how to work with the notion of 'postmodern emergence'.
