La créativité est la capacité à générer de nouvelles solutions ou alternatives aux problèmes, c'est-à-dire à laisser de côté vos préjugés et vos fausses idées et à améliorer votre réalité grâce à l'innovation.

Il faut donc tout d'abord briser certains mythes sur la créativité :
-Nous avons tendance à associer la créativité aux artistes, mais en fait, nous ne pouvons pas déterminer si quelqu'un est créatif ou non en fonction de ce qu'il fait.
La créativité consiste à ouvrir nos esprits et à trouver des moyens d'atteindre des objectifs dans une perspective innovante. Il s'agit d'accorder plus d'attention aux petites choses et de ne pas manquer l'occasion de rompre certaines idées reçues. C'est pourquoi nous pouvons penser que de grands artistes d'un point de vue technique, n’ont pas un esprit aussi créatif qu'on pourrait le supposer. De la même manière, nous pouvons trouver de la créativité dans un bureau, dans les écoles, en cuisine, partout.
-De plus, nous avons tendance à considérer la créativité comme un "don" et non comme une compétence que nous pouvons développer. Cette idée est une idée fausse que nous pouvons trouver dans presque toutes les compétences non techniques. Les gens pensent généralement que des compétences telles que l'empathie, la créativité ou la flexibilité sont des caractéristiques qui font partie de notre personnalité et non à des aspects que nous pouvons améliorer. Mais nous n'avons pas ce problème avec les « hard skills » ou avec l'activité physique. Nous savons que nous pouvons travailler sur nos muscles ou améliorer nos compétences et nous pouvons penser aux compétences non techniques de la même manière. La créativité exige un peu de pratique et de concentration, et vous pouvez la développer à tout âge.
Je pense que les personnes les plus créatives que j'ai rencontrées sont celles qui participent aux projets. Parfois, sans même le remarquer, ils trouvent toujours des solutions créatives aux problèmes de la communauté. Ils sont brillants dans ce qu'ils font et faire partie des projets vous inspirera définitivement, non seulement pour trouver de nouvelles voies mais aussi pour analyser et penser au monde que nous vivons différemment.

10 years remembering Armin: A local hero in a world of international heroes

 In 2008, almost 10 years after my first visit to Latin America having just qualified as a Spanish teacher, I arrived in a cold, grey Buenos Aires. The plan was to spend 2 months volunteering with a relatively new volunteering charity called Voluntario Global. Back in 2008, Valeria Gracia and Armin Díaz, the original founders of the organisation, had set up a grass roots organisation that worked, principally, out of two community centres in impoverished barrios of the Argentine capital. What was unique about Voluntario Global, and remains true today, is that it looked to bring together the energy and enthusiasm of international volunteers with the local members of the poor communities of Buenos Aires who believed that change in their lives, and those of their neighbourhoods at large, was possible through international co-operation and partnership.

Crèche Argentine (English version)


            The crèche is not just a place where your children are welcomed and cared for, it is an institution with a deep history and wonderful human values. Indeed, founded by women many years ago, it was a way for them to combine the useful with the pleasant, but above all it was a matter of necessity. Unable to look after children and earn money, they had to find a solution to both problems. So, by building their own crèche, they were able to keep an eye on the children but also develop a business. The beginnings were not easy, sometimes having to bring food from home to feed the children they were looking after because of the little money they had. But with ambition and courage they succeeded and now allow other women like them to do the same thing by getting a job as a teacher, cook or cleaner in the crèche and also to be able to drop off their children. Most of the women working in this institution are, in fact, accompanied by their respective children, sometimes even in the same class.

Argentina: A Dream Fulfilled

Argentina. A land of many ecosystems and one of the largest countries in South America. As a young adult, I dreamt of visiting Argentina, especially after reading Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara’s, “The Motorcycle Diaries,” and seeing the movie thereafter. Although the story and book focused on Che Guevara’s life, images of the Argentine landscape could not escape my mind. So, I decided to learn more about Argentina’s ecosystems and communities in various parts of the country via my studies.

BA GUIDE: How to feel more at home in the city

Getting to a new city can often be overwhelming, especially one as big as Buenos Aires! There were lots of things I did when I first got to the city to settle in, and some things that my friends did that I didn’t. From my own experience, and having spoken to them, I’ve compiled a guide of how to feel comfortable in the wonderful cosmopolitan metropolis that is the city of Buenos Aires.

How to Help When Things Seem a Bit Hopeless

In a time full of uncertainty, it can be hard not to feel despair as the news cycle makes the state of the world seem ever more desperate and beyond repair. This can be made worse by social media, which exposes us to (often unverified news) on a constant loop, making it very difficult to feel anything but anxious and powerless. Unfortunately these feelings, understandable as they are, stop us from taking action. The more dread we feel, the more paralysed we become and the less likely we are to mobilise. And whilst any one individual is unlikely to effect great change, there’s a whole lot that we can do together! That’s why volunteering can be a great way to get involved with a community, and break this cycle of feeling powerless. But sometimes it can be hard to know where to start, so I’ll share a few tips with you that have helped me:

A long weekend in Patagonia

Bariloche was not somewhere I’d heard of before coming to Argentina. Rather, I discovered it through recommendations from locals and the Instagram stories of exchange students. In most aspects of my life, I tend to plan and research diligently before doing something, but on this trip I took a step back and barely glanced at the guidebook or google images before going.
