Abstract

This goal of this research project was to determine whether or not Third Culture Kids can expect to experience enhanced levels of creative potential due to the experience of living abroad. Cultural influences affect what is deemed to be creative by a group. Multicultural experiences provide a broad based stored knowledge of cultural values from which to gain ideas. A case study examining the experiences of an American TCK living in Singapore was used for comparison purposes. The culmination of evidence seems to indicate that the creative potential of this group of children is indeed increased as a result of their multicultural experiences as they develop a broader world view.
