This paper examines the generative capacity of creativity and explores the role of creative arts practice in positioning artefacts as sites or ‘ideas spaces’ which can cultivate innovation towards the creation of new meaning across cultures. Using theories of creativity and cultural semiotics, the paper identifies artefacts that reflect novel meaning-making processes brought about through intercultural exchange.
