A discussion on the importance of creativity, the important role that creativity will play in the shift to automation, and the impact of inequality and insecurity on innovation.

Jordan Small
Executive Director

This week I bring you part two of a discussion with Leon Gurevitch of Victoria University of Wellington.

Part one of the discussion focused on innovation, advanced technologies and the creative sectors. This week’s episode furthers that theme and builds on last week’s episode with Kristy Grant of the Miramar Creative Centre on New Zealand’s creative exports. Leon co-authored a report with Kristy Grant looking at the creative export sector. We pick up the discussion in this episode with that report, how creativity is not exclusive to the creative sector, automation and the critically important role that creativity will play in this shift, how inequality and insecurity slows innovation, and much more.
