Event Summary: Many human cognitive capacities and processes may be deployed creatively, from unique choices made for oneself up through novel cultural shifts. Similarly, large swaths of our daily lives are taken up with performing spontaneous, on-the-fly, and unplanned activities that are, in a word, improvised. Charting out the nature of both creativity and improvisation, taken individually or together, remains an open and pressing issue. In this conference, we will delve into various philosophical, theoretical, empirical, and interdisciplinary issues that are related to creativity and improvisation.
