Robyn Landau is an artist and researcher who explores creativity through a cross-modal approach.

She believes creativity is a fundamental component of life, with broad impacts on happiness, motivation and pleasure. As a dancer, ceramicist and Kundalini Yoga practitioner, she fuses these organic and energetic schools of thought into her research. Her background in music, media and branding makes these concepts applicable, for tangibly felt impacts for individuals and organisations. She runs workshops and seminars across London which provide practical tools to optimise creativity, exploring contributing factors and key processes for enhancement. Robyn works on corporate programmes and creativity flow research at State On Demand.
