On May 5, 2016, we prototyped Creative Power Day with over 500 students in four countries. It was a great success with a lot of rich learnings!
Our goal was to show young people that building their creative power would make them better at everything they tried – from schoolwork, sports, and the arts, to being better friends now and being stronger leaders in the future. We conducted one-hour workshops to help students see connections between disparate concepts, develop an openness to new ideas, and building resilience through experimentation. The response was incredibly positive from students, teachers, and families!
We will take the learnings from our workshops held in Oakland, California; San Francisco, California; New York, New York; Savannah, Georgia; Vancouver, Canada; Reykjavik, Iceland; and Cork, Ireland, so we can scale Creative Power Day to a larger audience in 2017 (date to be announced soon)!
Check out some of the responses to Creative Power Day from our student participants!
We need volunteers to build this movement – please get in touch if you can participate next year!
