This book discusses 10 ways to show your work. One of the ideas Kleon talks about is the idea of a scenius. A scenius is the idea that many of the great creations of our time came from a group of talented individuals who collaborated together. This term doesn’t ignore the achievements of the individuals, but shows us how collaboration and creative ideas can contribute to some amazing work. In Kleon’s words, “…the idea of scenius is that it makes room in the story of creativity for the rest of us: the people who don’t consider ourselves geniuses.”
