E.N. Thompson Forum 2014-15 Header

2014-2015 Schedule

Creativity fuels our world. It propels innovation, sustains ambition, stimulates the economy, and inspires art that feeds our souls. Creativity acknowledges no boundaries; it offers itself equally to poets, musicians, scientists, entrepreneurs, agriculturalists and scholars. “The Creative World” will explore creativity’s impact on individuals and societies, posing the question, “How can creativity change our culture—and our planet—for the better?”
