People usually have the impression that youths should be full of vigour and passion and describe them as possessing “the swagger and the bravado of a fearless calf.” It is well known that youths are not necessarily responsible for their own thinking and easily accept new ideas, hence it is an advantage for them to participate in the “creative industry,” which has a great need of innovation and creativity. Is this commonly accepted and direct concept true, or is it just a misunderstanding? This article aims to create a theoretical framework with different elements for developing creativity by citing several creativity-based academic discourses so as to investigate the meaning of “creativity” in the “creative industries.” This theoretical framework allows us to develop a better understanding of creativity and how we might nurture and foster it. This is a particularly useful reference for youths who are going to dedicate themselves to the creative industry.
