Focusing on historical case studies, this research network will examine how connections between members of a community, and between different communities, can enhance creativity. At the same time, it will subject those key terms to rigorous investigation. The network will bring together established and early career researchers, as well as non-academic stakeholders, from a range of institutions, to debate key questions about the relationship between creativity and community.
