This month, the New Zealand Creativity Challenge is setting up camp in Wellington, and whatever your creative ability, you’re invited!
The challenge, which is in its second year, is all about connecting people across different fields and encouraging them to get in touch with their creative sides.
To kick-start the conference, lead experts will fly in from across the world to share the importance of creativity to nature, science, education and human possibilities. Creative types visiting for the event include authors Robert and Michele Root-Bernstein, editors Steven Pritzker and Ruth Richards, and educational psychologist Arthur Cropley. The event will include hands-on workshops, discussion groups and excellent networking opportunities, all based around the theme “Creativity Crosses Boundaries”.
Jonathan Milne, managing director of The Learning Connexion and conference organiser, hopes Wellingtonians will consider joining the event even if doesn’t sound like their usual thing.
“We hope that people from all walks of life will participate in the challenge. It’s social, cultural, academic, commercial, imaginative and realistic. It’s a blend of qualities that make New Zealand an extraordinary place.”
