"I am beginning to think that the mundane becomes vibrant and vital with the addition of creativity."

Creativity Networking Series

“The creative force is present in all humans to some degree. Pressures to conform within education and society often silence creative expression for many students and citizens. The potential for its development remains, however. ... The right of an individual to create new ideas and to expect a respectful, supportive climate for their expression is a human right too often ignored. The human right to think and be heard at higher, more complex and mutualistic levels is a necessary added freedom." - Author and Educator Berenice Bleedorn

NEXT UP - JANUARY 16, 2011:
Creative Purpose and Practical Wisdom for 2011
Joe Miguez, Artist, Facilitator and Labyrinth Builder, Labyrinth Experience

As we begin a new year, come and explore how creativity and imagination can help you navigate purpose, meaning and intention in your life. You will enter your own story to see its challenges and successes -- its deep valleys of doubt and its mountaintops of achievement. This experience is an opportunity to discover how to intentionally pay attention to your practical wisdom for living a purposeful life. Creativity Networking is Sunday, January 16, from (NEW TIME) 1 to 2:30 p.m.

  • Joe Miguez is known throughout the United States as the “labyrinth man.” He has built a consulting practice based on stimulating creativity in individuals and groups to achieve personal and organizational innovation. Facilitator, change agent and labyrinth builder, Joe has worked with clients from major corporations, media, college and religious retreat centers. He has conducted workshops and delivered keynotes in Canada, Mexico, Europe and the United States. His professional commitment focuses on inspiring reflection in action, step by step.

This monthly Creativity Networking Series provides a forum for exploring the many facets of creativity and for discovering and networking with other people interested in creativity.

Creativity matters in all aspects of society. If you want to reconnect with your inherent creativity and explore new ways of expressing it, don't miss this series. It will cover topics about creativity in all forms (including, but not limited to, arts), creative thinking, creative communities, creativity and education, creativity in organizations, creative persons, the creative process, creative aging and more. The series includes opportunities to learn with others, to think in new ways, and to generate new ideas. The format of the monthly Creativity Networking sessions will be informal and will usually include about a presentation or experiential workshop (from a different facilitator each month), dialogue about the topic, and networking with other participants. Come and be inspired to apply your imagination and invent new possibilities for yourself and your community.
