Creativity and Co-creativity Part 2: What are the differences?

This step differentiates co-creative practice from creative practice.

This step focuses on differentiating co-creative practice from creative practice, and highlights how co-creative practice can lead artists and arts practitioners to adapt their way of working.

It covers:

  • How co-creative arts practices can remove a number of barriers which may keep people living with dementia from participating in other creative activities.

  • How co-creativity engages artists and arts practitioners in ways which may not be in line with their normal mode of practice.

  • The way in which co-creative practice finds a new balance between the way in which ‘participants’ and ‘artists’ create and contribute alongside each other.
