Forte Festival of Creativity: Idea Accelerator Meetings

Start Time: January 14, 2019 4:30pm
End Time: January 15, 2019 5:30pm

Creativity describes an emergent capability to bring something new into existence–an idea, an object, an event, a performance or a process–that has value for the creator and others.  “Open Table” ABOUT THE THEME: A table is an object that takes on a symbolic dimension in culture, representing anything from a piece of furniture to a “meeting place” that invites people to come together and share. It is a symbol of connectivity that is varied in form, too, an open space, a place for bringing things together (people for a discussion, a data set, a list of elements, the contents of a book), a place for exchanges of all sorts and a space for sharing from ideas to food to stories and spirited conversations.  “Idea Accelerator Meetings,” Mon., Jan. 14 (Hill House, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.) & Tue., Jan. 15 (Reynolds Hall, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.) Faculty, students & student groups are invited to pitch ideas for presentations they wish to offer at these times.
