Creative development is the process of individual and collective growth in new, effective, and meaningful ideas, skills, thinking, and production. The creative growth of individuals can happen within a specific domain, like science, and also develop generally in skills and dispositions that are transferrable across domains. As a sociocultural process, creative development of one individual builds from and contributes to the creativity of others. Creative development across the life span relates to how a person adapts to the changing circumstances of life with agency, a resilient and growth-oriented attitude, and a sense of possibility for themselves and their world.
