A Society Without Creative Expression?

What would a society be that lacks creative expression? Why is it important for creative expression to be a part of a society?

  • I think it would be interesting to mention how creative expression is both valued and repressed in different areas of society. For instance, talk about creativity in public schools and how education can foster or hinder creativity. – carlied 7 years ago
  • I think creativity is proportionate to interacting with Nature. Humans have observed, learned from Nature and creatively build societies. To continue building staying connected with nature would be important. – KoseSeeks 7 years ago
  • A society lacking creative expression would be oppressive. I cannot imagine a world where one could not have their own outlet for creative expression nor one that I could not appreciate others creative expression. We learn to open our minds to other possibilities and ways of doing and thinking, to expand who we are and our relationship with the world around us. – brightcloud 7 years ago
  • Referring to any famous dystopic novel could aid in helping readers truly envision what a world without creative expression would be like, assuming they've already read it. Like brightcloud said, it would be an oppression and is presented that way in the following novels: 1984, Brave New World, Feed and many more. – Slaidey 7 years ago
