The Creativity World Forum is finally here! Oklahoma City is hosting the Forum and I am more than grateful. I can't wait to hear what world leaders in creativity have to say. I know that James and I will leave the event, both Tuesday and Wednesday, feeling inspired and encouraged to work even harder to make our dreams come true for the school.
I think that I have written about this before, but I want to write it here just in case I didn't. This is important to the story of our project in the Paseo. The Education Symposium related to the Creativity World Forum was held at UCO last September (2009) and I was lucky enough to attend. What happened there was magical. It was during the symposium that I began to realize just how much I really wanted to open the school because it will be a center for creativity.
In fact, when the representatives from The Blue School in New York City began to speak, it was as if the switch was turned on and there would be no turning it off. They even let me visit and observe last spring when I was there. The result has been enthusiasm, motivation, inspiration and more! Our goal is to provide Oklahoma City with an education center completely based on creativity.
I am really looking forward to what Sir Ken Robinson and all of the other presenters have to say today because I know that it will provide more of what I found at the Education Symposium. I can't wait to get there! And if you can't make it yourself, you can follow along here! It's going to be a great day!!!
