• Diversity increases creativity among schoolchildren.
• Creativity effects are moderated by salient mindset.
• Diversity increases creativity when a communal mindset is salient.
• Diversity does not increase creativity when a divisional mindset is salient.
We conducted an experimental study with the aim of testing certain conditions under which engaging with cultural diversity increases creativity among schoolchildren. Results obtained from a sample of 149 Italian elementary schoolchildren revealed that engaging with cultural diversity, operationalized by asking Italian children to work with immigrant children on a cooperative task, led to an increase in creativity. Furthermore, we found that this effect was only present when a communal but not a divisional mindset (emphasizing group distinctions) was present. We discuss theoretical and practical implications of findings.
