What if...we could harness the power of creativity?

Creative capital is the capacity of an individual or community to imagine and to express new possibilities through creative activity. It is the genius behind art, music, and writing. It is also the curiosity and insight that finds new solutions to complex issues. It is the entrepreneurship that establishes new businesses. It is inspiration. It is innovation and it is leadership.

"As New Zealand’s capital city university, we are uniquely placed to nurture creative talent and work with different communities to create change. Our academics, who are experts in different fields, and our students, who are the next generation of creative leaders, are involved in a number of extraordinary initiatives that will have long-term positive impact. This is a very exciting time for creativity at Victoria University of Wellington."
Professor Jennifer Windsor, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Faculty of Education

The cultivation of creative capital is at the core of what we do. We understand that creativity, creative literacy, and unfettered imagination make vital contributions to New Zealand society.
