SUNDAY PANEL DISCUSSION

How to Grow Creativity? A Thought-Full Discussion
with Tim Hurson, Marta Ockuly, Dr. Jane Rose and Dr. Kitty Heusner, moderator

To end the Florida Creativity Conference, on Sunday (3/25) we will explore the all- important question “NOW WHAT?”  How might we each take ideas and strategies back into our own worlds and GROW CREATIVITY?  A panel of experts representing the ARTS, TEACHING/TRAINING/LEARNING and BUSINESS will share their perspectives and interact both as a panel and with questions from conference participants. A fourth panel member will highlight current research and understanding of CREATIVITY. The key focus for each Panel Member will be to share briefly  (1) How creativity is fostered within their organization/arena and (2) How they see their organization/arena impacting the growth of creativity beyond their boundaries. Following the four brief presentations panel members will interact about each other’s ideas as well as addressing questions raised by the audience.
