It also looks at the role of creativity throughout history and how it helped to shape culture, inclusion, and diversity in all its forms. Central to the research initiatives and projects is a desire to encourage in-depth understanding of creativity and culture in humanity. The aim of the CCRG research output is to make for a better human life in a better world.
