Creative Thinking: An Interdisciplinary ExplorationAugust 6, 2013 - August 13, 2013
Mānoa Campus, Krauss 12
Creativity is not just what artists do, but rather a fundamental component for innovation and success in any field, from art to science, technology to business. Creativity is a way of thinking, a way of seeing and a way of approaching the world. Through a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, examine the nature of creativity including the many myths and misconceptions commonly associated with it. Creative thinking is seen as a natural process that not only allows for greater adaptability, idea generation and problem solving, but also adds an increased dimension of richness and meaning to our lives.
Tuesdays, August 6 and 13 • 6:30-9 p.m.
