At the plenary session that opened the conference, Oksana Siedashova, Associate Professor at KROK Business School, International Ambassador for Creativity in Ukraine, spoke about creativity during the war.
During the presentation, Oksana Siedashova presented research on what is a source of inspiration during the war, explained how the concept of «creativity» is perceived and used by Ukrainians today, and demonstrated artworks by Ukrainian artists Artem Gusev and Maksym Palenko as examples of artists' reflections on the war and sources of support for the Ukrainian people. We are proud that it is Ukraine that puts a little more meaning into the concept of creativity: creativity as a way to solve serious problems; creativity as a force for unity; creativity as an opening for growth - even in difficult life conditions; creativity as a factor of survival and recovery.
