Have you ever wondered how the innovative process works? Would you like to tap deeper into your own creativity (for profit and fun)? Do you know that innovation is alive and well in La Porte County?
Join us at a community-wide celebration of World Creativity and Innovation Week 2014, on Tuesday, April 22, 5 - 7 p.m. This annual event will be hosted at LifeWorks, IU Health-La Porte Hospital, 3777 North Frontage Road, Michigan City.
The evening of family fun and learning is sponsored by the Center for Creative Solutions, Inc.™ It is free and offers something intriguing for everyone.
This year’s theme is "Energizing Your World." Electric rivals, Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, will make a cameo appearance. They will share their insights into the creative process.
After their short presentation at 5 p.m., the audience will navigate through a variety of exhibits and activities. Presentations will showcase the many aspects of energy– from our physical world to our mental and emotional processes.
The purpose of World Creativity and Innovation Week is to recognize and show the ability of all people to think creativity. Throughout World Creativity and Innovation Week, everyone is encouraged to acknowledge and use their own creativity in their homes, schools, jobs, organizations and communities.
It is also designed to emphasize that our society, our nation, and our economic viability depend on America’s ability to tap individual and collective innovation. "Whether new ideas seem small or huge, they can have profound effects on our everyday lives. In this 21st Century, we live in the ‘Creative Economy.’ Highly innovative persons and organizations will be the most profitable and have the greatest impact in our world," according to Cynthia A.
