Promethean

Promethean is a platform for teaching young teenagers about the relevance and application of creativity and its broader importance in life.

The project was borne out of an interest in how people from different cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds can be united through youth culture. An investigation into the barriers of socioeconomic mobility, led me to believe that creativity is a key ‘hard skill’ for the future of work. It is a core competency that all workers will need in the future, yet it declines generationally and through current education practices.

Promethean teaches creativity through activity-based workshops, which have been developed from cutting edge research. Promethean has now been piloted through multiple creative cooking workshops and a web application.
