Statement of
Gary Greenberg, Anna Goldsworthy, Peter Drew
Abstract: The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard argued that anxiety is essential for creativity - as a dual force it can be both destructive and generative, depending on how we approach it. Author and psychotherapist Gary Greenberg, writer and pianist Anna Goldsworthy and artist Peter Drew discuss whether inner angst helps or hinders the creative process, and how they channel their inner demons without assuming the foetal position.
