Abstract

The subject of the discussion in this paper is place in the sense of physical space and its role in creative activity. In the text, we emphasize that a physical place is implicitly defined as creative by the people who conduct or have conducted their creative activity there. We emphasize that it promotes a creative lifestyle and poses a challenge for education. We are looking for distinguishing features of creative places and spaces. In the paper, we also present a proposal to analyse creative places using Wilber’s (2007) integral theory and theory of affordance. Starting from the concepts of Florida (2010), Amabile (2019), Oldenburg (1989), and Palasma (2013), we list the conditions that a place should meet to promote creative activity. In the conclusions, we point to the role of creative affordances in education.
