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.

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.

QUOTE(S) OF THE WEEK

“Where all think alike there is little danger of innovation.” – Edward Abbey

“Creativity dies in an indisciplined environment.” – James C. Collins

“If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.” – Jack Dixon

“While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.” – Publilius Syrus

“I can always be distracted by love, but eventually I get horny for my creativity.” – Gilda Radner

“Doubt is the father of invention.” – Ambrose Bierce

“Problems are only opportunities in work clothes.” – Henry J. Kaiser

“I want to challenge the idea that design is but a tool to create function and beauty. Design greatly impacts upon people’s lives, all lives. Design is a way in which we can feel included in the world. It is a way in which we can uphold a person’s dignity.” – Sinead Burke

“Every meeting that does not stir the imagination and curiosity of attendees and increase bonding and cooperation and engagement and sense of worth and motivate rapid action and enhance enthusiasm is a permanently lost opportunity.” – Tom Peters

The articles are from a variety of sources and, therefore, do not necessarily reflect the views of the NCN.  Despite our best efforts, links may fail without warning since each news source posts and archives its articles differently.

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.
