Creativity, culture contact, and diversity

World Futures 66 (3 & 4):266 – 285 (2010)
Abstract
Recent trends in the understanding of culture contact, with concepts such as hybridization, cosmopolitanism, and cultural innovation, open up the possibility of a new understanding of human interaction. While the social imaginary is rich with images of conflict resulting from culture contact, images of creativity are far rarer. We propose the creation of an extensive research project to document cultural creativity, starting with obvious examples in the arts, and expanding into all areas of life in order to counteract the present conflictual images and develop a social imaginary with positive “attractor” images that can guide to greater creativity
