QUOTE(S) OF THE WEEK

 

“Let your kids dream.  Let them be creative, because one day they may support you.  That is the American Dream.” – Wynonna Judd

 

“I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.” – Thomas A. Edison

 

“To believe that what made us successful up to this point will continue to make us successful in the future… makes about as much sense as buying a lottery ticket to finance retirement.” – Holly Green

 

“The lunatic, the lover, and the poet / Are of imagination all compact.” – William Shakespeare

 

“When you lose small businesses, you lose big ideas. People who own their own businesses are their own bosses. They are independent thinkers. They know they can’t compete by imitating the big guys; they have to innovate. So they are less obsessed with earnings than they are with ideas.” – Ted Turner

The National Creativity Network believes that by fostering creativity in our society as a whole, and specifically with future generations, America can remain a leader in innovation and free enterprise. The very future of our communities and institutions depends on our ability to nurture and harness imagination to creatively solve problems. If creativity is to be nurtured, systems, institutions and networks must be transformed.

 

The opportunities that emerge to transform our nation are largely dependent upon the degree to which we are connected to each other. Our connection will become a catalyst:

 

  • to enhance the flow of relevant information,

 

  • and to improve the ease with which key nodes of creativity, be they in the domains of Education, Commerce, Culture or across disciplines, can gain access to the best thinking, best questions, and most successful practices as well as other resources their ventures may require.

 

Our strategy is to engage thought leaders across North America to create a powerful network for transformation.
