Reigniting your Creativity|重燃創造力 | Brendon Chen | TEDxNeihu

Brendon Chen is a man of many trades. He’s a jewelry designer, an artist, and also a stage performer. He also founded The Escape Artist 10 years ago hoping to allow more people to experience their own creativity and let workers from all different areas of expertise change their ways of thinking all while experiencing different possibilities in working together as part of a team.

After returning from Milan, Brendon discovered something he’d never noticed before. Taiwanese people are very unconfident in their own creative abilities. Many people have stopped believing that they can change, stopped believing in the value of innovation, or stopped believing in their dreams or anything that is not sure. Society has become a place where people dream big, but they live in a way that guarantees stability and safety. He hopes to do something from the basic step of changing people’s experiences and ways of thinking perceptually to letting them be able to understand these old ways of thinking and where they came from as well as how to change them rationally.

All industries have been hit by the effects of the pandemic in 2020, and things look like they will continue to drag on for a while with some experts saying that it will never end. In a post-pandemic age, there are a lot of things we need to relearn, ways of doing things that need to be redesigned. How can we as people begin to adapt? Can we discuss everything in just 18 minutes? Could it be that the problem isn’t really all that complicated and frightening? Could it be that the answer was actually in your heart all along?

陳建衡同時跨足於珠寶設計師、藝術家與音樂劇演員三種身分,10年前創辦 The Escape Artist,希望讓更多人體驗自己的創造力,讓各大企業員工改變思維、體驗團隊合作不同的可能性。

從米蘭回到台灣的Brendon,意外地發現以前從來沒看見的一件事:台灣人對自己的創造力如此地沒有自信,不只沒自信,很多人已經到了徹底否定擁有任何創造力的程度。許多人不再相信自己可以產生改變、創造價值,也不再相信夢想,或任何沒有保證、不帶確據的事。社會形成一種人人高喊夢想,但行動上卻處處追求安穩與保證的氛圍。感性上,希望能做些什麼,從根本改變人們的體驗與思維,也希望從理性上讓人們了解這樣舊有的思維模式如何生成、以及如何改變。

2020年各行各業都受到疫情極大的衝擊,看來全球疫情還會持續好一陣子,甚至有專家認為它永遠不會真的消失;後疫情時代,有很多事情我們得重新學習、調整作法,我們的人生、事業該怎樣因應?
18分鐘真的探討得完嗎?會不會問題其實沒這麼複雜、也沒有這麼可怕,而解答其實早就在你心中?
