The Creativity Challenge

“The challenges we currently face are without precedent. More people live on this planet now than at any other time in history. The world's population has doubled in the past 30 years. We're facing an increasing strain on the world's natural resources. Technology is advancing at a headlong rate of speed. It's transforming how people work, think, and connect. It's transforming our cultural values. If you look at the resulting strains on our political and financial institutions, on health care, on education, there really isn't a time in history where you could look back and say, "Well, of course, this is the same thing all over again." It isn't. This is really new, and we're going to need every ounce of ingenuity, imagination, and creativity to confront these problems.” Sir Ken Robinson

A gathering of creatives is planned for April 2013 in Taranaki, New Zealand.

The Creativity Challenge is intended to be a three-day gathering for personal, professional, and organisational creativity — a feast of 120 minute [some longer] - concurrent workshop sessions presented by some of the best creativity leaders in New Zealand and world-wide. The forum will expose participants to a wide range of perspectives on the research and practice of imagination, creativity and innovation. And on top of the scheduled programme, there will be evening salons, pecha-kucha, dialogue sessions, music, dancing, and just plain fun.
