UK Creativity Researchers is a collaborative community open to anyone with an interest in the psychology of creativity. We are a network that facilitates the organisation of annual creativity conferences, to bring together researchers, practitioners, academics, students, and any other interested parties. The conferences are not-for-profit events organised by volunteer committee, one of whom normally hosts at their home institution, see our HISTORY for more information. We aim to keep our registration fees low, to be as inclusive as possible, and put all fees back into the costs of the conference events.
