Started by American teachers to encourage students to ask more questions without fear of ridicule, the ideals of Ask A Stupid Question Day are useful for everyone. An inquisitive mind leads to knowledge, and knowledge is power!
As creatives we should never be afraid of asking questions or voicing ideas that might be considered stupid or ridiculous. This is often where the best ideas come from.
If we’re afraid to ask, how will we ever become knowledgable? There was a day when Einstein couldn’t do long division, and Grayson Perry didn’t know how to start a potter’s wheel. Asking simple questions like “Why?” or “Why not?” is what powers creativity.
