Creative Maturity is creativity that blossoms because of age and experience. There is a pervasive myth that creativity is the domain of the young and diminishes with age. This is yet another ageist stereotype that needs to be dispelled. We discuss how creativity can be enriched by experience and the development of a full portfolio of useful routines.
We discuss the role that Gene Cohen played in confronting the myth that “you can’t teach old dogs new tricks,” and his development of the creative aging movement.
This episode is excerpted from an interview Robin Gunn, or the Oklahoma Senior Journal, conducted with MINDRAMP’s Michael C. Patterson and Roger Anunsen.
