Introducing a Rubber Republic original!

New Work: How Did You Learn To Be Creative?

The World Economic Forum says that by 2020, creativity will be one of the top three most essential skills for employment in the future. So why do only 37% of us think that UK schools should cultivate and encourage curiosity? 

‘How Did You Learn To Be Creative?’ features the UK’s best original talent populating the creative industries. Discussing their career highs and lows, their opinions about creative education and top tips for people starting out in the industry. 

Our first episode features the incredible Gav Strange. Gav is a director and designer at Aardman animations and the founder of Jam Factory. He talks about the relationship between satisfaction and motivation, his desire to become a cosmic entity and Howard from the Halifax adverts, all whilst making a plasticine self-portrait.

Next month Vanessa Kisuule talks about her compulsion to create, the things which she wishes she made and her majesty, Beyonce.

Other inspiring creative tidbits

Now that Gav has got your creative juices flowing, why stop this artistic power hour now? Here are some more carefully curated creative inspirations discovered by us to gift to you!
