Conferences‘You had to be there’: liveness, creativity and the unforeseen

In this talk Saunders discusses experiential work, the role of technology in creating moments of spontaneous intimacy, synchronicity, enchantment and the unexpected, and the impact of pandemic years on the connection between inspiration and mysticism: that the creative process depends on a belief in the potential existence of something we’ve never seen before.
