Banyen's Description: 

One of humanity’s greatest gifts is that of creative expression. The results of our need to express ourselves creatively, whether through painting, writing, or the hobbies in which we are passionately involved, surround us. In Creators on Creating, some of the world’s most notable and interesting creators discuss their interaction with this ability, how it has transformed their lives, how to foster it and harness its power, the responsibilities that come with it, and how indispensable a tool it is in building a successful society.

The contributors to this impressive collection—Frederico Fellini, Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, Henry Miller, Annie Dillard, Frank Zappa, Ursula K. LeGuin, Anna Halprin, Igor Stravinsky, and many others—are some of our most influential filmmakers, artists, writers, painters, poets, and musicians. As they offer views of their own creative experiences and thoughts, we see how they:

F  uncover the passion that drives their creativity

    open the mind to new insights, paths, and trajectories

F  use imagination to challenge assumptions and existing orders

F  work within a creative ecology of people, ideas, and experiences

F  balance freedom and exploration with hard work and mastery of their craft

Published in Jeremy Tarcher’s exemplary New Consciousness Reader series, Creators on Creating will dip readers into a deep well of creative possibility, where seeds of artistry are born.
