Creativity Conversations with Michael Unrau, episode 51. Michael has spent the last 5 years investigating creativity from an ontological, complex systems, and transdisciplinary lens. Completing his PhD in creativity and social innovation, Michael has a particular focus on how creative mindfulness impacts complex social challenges like collective trauma and climate change. He teaches social innovation at Mount Royal University, was an adjunct professor at University of Calgary, and has held international fellowships and facilitated creative projects around the world, including a “mini” social-lab in India.
Michael’s main interest is in finding and accessing creativity in everyone through a complex systems lens to generate social innovations for societal transformation.
Michael has also been a lay-monk in a Buddhist Monastery in Thailand, co-founded a physical theatre company, is a published poet, song-writer, and photographer, and was a host for the TV show “Active Traveller.” He facilitates expressive arts, Living Inquiries mindfulness, EFT, and is a certified Transformational Arts facilitator.

--Creativity Conversations explores the nature of our infinite creative potential. You need to know this! You’re creative, too, even if you don't yet consider yourself to be. Creativity is as simple as being open and curious, creating interesting things, solving problems, finding solutions, and being in "flow." It's essence is always and everywhere the same.
