Computational Creativity is an emerging field that studies and exploits the potential of computers to be more interventive and autonomous in creative processes. This paper presents a recently proposed distributed computational architecture that is based on a cognitive theory that intends to model human consciousness. In its nucleus lies a Global Workspace and a number of Generators that compete to have access to it. Two Generators being developed by our team are described, one based on the Conceptual Blending Theory, the other based on an evolutionary process.
