\nI've just had a haircut, and as usual I feel a whole lot better for it. Relief from the straggly bit over the ears, trim and neat round the back, no floppy Hugh Grant quiff at the front. Oh, and I went for a little colour and a couple of 'go-faster' stripes down the sides. I've a photo somewhere...\n\nThe point is my stylist on this occasion was Evie who is 11. She was taking part in the brilliant 'Haircuts by Children' in Birmingham. Haircuts by Children is a programme designed to encourage shifts of confidence between adults and young people. A number of friends and colleagues said to me, 'wow, that was brave.'\n\nWell, no, not really. What was the worst that could happen to my hair? I guess I could have lost an ear in a really extreme case... but in three years of running this project, there has so far not been an injury. Why should there be? Kids with scissors or clippers are usually naturally careful. I could have had an unfortunate stripe across the top for a week or so, or the colour could have taken a week to wear out.\n\nNo, I wasn't the one taking a risk. \n\nImagine holding the clippers and preparing to lay into someone else's barnet. Evie didn't know initially that I'm an easy going avuncular sort of cove; nor that I'm not exactly precious about my appearance. And besides she had to take decisions about the style and the settings of the clippers to achieve the desired effect. \n\nEvie set about the restyling with gusto and enthusiasm. She was a faster clipper than the Cutty Sark. But she had a little difficulty reaching over the top.\n\nAt the end of the trim, we both glowed with pleasure; and then decided that we would go for something more to make a point – thus and hence the go faster stripes and the colour. I've been showing off the new style with absolute pride ever since. And sadly the stripes are rapidly growing out. I may have to get the clippers back to auto-graph them – the grooves over the ears that act as guides about where to place my new specs..\n\nHaircuts by Children is a programme that started in Toronto and is produced by the remarkable and innovative community arts and theatre company, Mammalian Diving Reflex. MDR specialises in arts for community change and development, and place a focused emphasis on reversing expectations of young people, their confidence and creativity.\n\nThey practise and realise the philosophy of Guillermo Gomez-Pena, the Mexican artist now working in the USA whose statement, 'the arts are a powerful tool for making society, not just a reflection of it,' is more relevant than ever in times of rapid change.\n\n\nOver-reaching, using their imaginations, taking risks...\n\n

Bio-mimetics is the science of picking up the ingenuity of nature, and applying it to the human world.\nIt is the science that has produced Velcro… it’s inventor George de Mestral spotted the burrs clinging to his dog’s coat, saw the possibilities of reproducing the little hooks and loops, and came up with the first new fastener since the zip.
the capability to see connections across disciplines and seemingly unrelated ideas and areas of knowledge. In this neck of the curriculum woods we can spot examples such as [[metaphor]], puns, double entendres and [[humour]], [[analogies]], [[allegory]], signs and symbols, and applications of cross-curricular activity like [[bio-mimetics]].\nSeeing and exploring [[relationships]] between ideas is joyful. It makes everyone feel clever; it’s like scoring a goal, getting hold of the ball and giving it a right tonk. The breakthough is enervating, success is addictive. Shouldn’t we offer that experience of success to every child?\n
only connect\nconnecting thoughts and ideas across a distance of subject, meaning, discipline, or form is one of the most joyful acts of the imagination. It's like scoring a goal, giving a ball a good tonk, really connecting with the driver...\nand there is surprise and delight in there too..\nwhich is why it is so satisfying to explore creativity with young people; they take such pleasure in their own surprise.\nThe connections can surprise by virtue of their outlandishness, their outrageous unexpectedness, and then comprehension and recognition kicks in and the satisfaction grows.\nI sometimes think of the act of creativity as a two part momentum - apprehension (when the idea whacks you across the face, or grabs you by the collar) followed by comprehension (when recognition absorbs the outlandish into the existing framework of understanding)..\napprehension and comprehension..\nwhat do you think of that?
testing, trying something out, being brave..\nA six year old girl was painting in school in that wonderfully intense and focused way that children concentrate.\n'What are you painting?' asks the kindly teacher.\n'It's a picture of God,' replies the little girl.\n'Well that's nice,' says the teacher kindly, 'but no-one knows what God looks like.'\n'Well they will in a minute,' the little girl replies, brightly.
What do we mean when we say, 'trust your intuition'?\nIt has to mean more than a gut feeling, or going with a hunch.\n\nAnd what of [[counter-intuition]]?\n\n
still experimenting
Keats was interested in the states of mind that inspired or simply gave rise to his creative impulses. In particular he wrote about negative capability thus - being in uncertainties, mysteries and doubts without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.

that capability to lock on to a problem and not be deterred by failure, indeed failure is incorporated into the working towards a creative solution. Resilience also means not being distracted by alternative approaches and the ability to tolerate confusion and [[ambiguity]]; determination to find a solution and employ the imagination when no obvious route appears likely. Learning through trial and error.\nResilience is one of the key characteristics of [[creativity]]. \nWe can see young people building their resilience from a very early age; through play they try and try again to build the lego tower, or work out the maze.\nLater, they may become impatient; and in many ways, the adult world encourages the quick ready answer, the fifteen minutes of success.\nThose who continue to practice and learn, continue to work it out, keeping going in the face of uncertainty are those who employ real creative thinking.
the capacity to know what to do when you don't know what to do..\nResourcefulness is having a bank of creative thinking resources and techniques on which to draw. And employing patience and not forcing the issue. It is about trusting one's intuition that a solution will emerge, often by letting the mind relax and taking the foot off the gas. Keats talked about '[[negative capability]]' and in our modern world we all too often place ourselves and others under pressure to come up with an idea.. this is often a feature of brain-storming.\nKnowing that we can employ other techniques like [[scamper]] or [[triz]] or just taking the mind for a walk, means that we can relax and draw on genuine creative resourcefulness.\nThe notion of knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do also has implications for the relationship between teachers and students. It allows the authenticity of real discovery to be made because there is the explicit assumption that the teacher does not have all the answers. Teachers can become genuine [[co-investigators]], co-conspirators in the quest
pushing further into unknown territory? pathfinding? \nwe can all come up with any number of cliches - envelopes, comfort zones, edge of reason and understanding.\nRisk lies at the heart of experiment, or can do if fear becomes an inhibitor.. but in our risk-averse society what does it benefit us to wrap ourselves in the blanket of insurance?\nwe now have a society where more children are injured on their own garden based trampolines than by falling from trees. Why are parents buying [[trampolines]] for the back garden? because they fear letting their children out to the fields or the park or the street...\nSo risk could be about tree houses, or dens.. or the wonderful [[Haircuts by Children]]...\nit could be daring to be different..\nthe implications of a risk-averse society could be far reaching, leaving us devoid of ideas, speculation and investment.\nRisk - it could be vital to our future prosperity; it should be a vital component of our education system..\nit could be... you fill in the gaps
scamper uses a synectic technique to try new ways of coming up with a solution. SCAMPER is of course an acronym:\nS - substitute - replace an object or an idea with another\nC - combine - bringing different ideas together\nA - adapt - change the charcteristics of an idea or problem\nM - multiply, magnify, minify - change the scale or number of the ideas\nP - put to other uses - change the function or purpose\nE - eliminate - take something away, remove some aspect\nR - reverse - turn the problem inside out, upside down or back to front\n\nall to provoke a fresh approach, a different perspective to a problem.
The world above 600m\n\n 600m? Any ideas? It is the height above sea level that requires group leaders with young people to conduct risk assessments, inform and get permission from county hall, or, if an outdoors activity centre, to have additional insurance. Geography field trips that include a walk up the side of Pennyghent need the licence; those up the side of Brown Willy don't.\nIt made me wonder about the world over 600m that adults are so anxious about. It's almost as if there is a censorship for young people, as if the web nanny was switched on to the landscape.\n\nOf course, what is really happening in back gardens everywhere is that kids have heard about the world above 600m, and are using the trampolines to try and get a glimpse.\n\nOver-reaching, using their imaginations, taking risks...\n\n

The biggest cause of domestic accidents involving young people are on garden trampolines. The reason is that more families, sorry, that should be parents, are buying trampolines to give their kids some physical activity to pursue that doesn't involve going out of the safety of the garden; that is not going out over the fields and climbing trees, or playing in the park where the paedoes lurk.\n\nOf course, what is really happening is that kids have heard about [[the world above 600m]], and are using the trampolines to try and get a glimpse.\n\nOver-reaching, using their imaginations, taking risks...\n\n
a creative thinking technique which starts with a solution and works backwards to the original problem.\nIt can provoke a fresh perspective to imagine the ideal solution or end result, and then to imagine what the step immediately before looks like, and then the step before that.
