Creativity: Oklahoma Creativity

Post 11 of HEIA: Creativity

I'm not alone. Even the state of Oklahoma believes in creativity. Friends, let me introduce you to Oklahoma Creativity, a "not-for-profit organization that supports creativity and innovation in commerce, culture, and education -- ideas that contribute to the greater good in Oklahoma and beyond."

My thoughts exactly when I found this website.

Oklahoma Creativity asks the question: Why creativity?:

"In recent years, creativity has become a very highly valued skill. Creative people combine existing possibilities to reach new often unexpected solutions. Creativity is an essential building block for innovation in business. Everyone possesses a certain level of creativity; some just have more than others..."

Ya heard right go exercise that creative muscle called your brain. And while you're at it, have your kids do the same thing.

Creativity is highly undervalued in today's world. Look at the public schools. What are the first programs that get cut? Art. Music. Theater. It's a it's great to see organizations that are dedicated to fighting for such an important cause!

Its such a shame that children aren't as creative as they used to be. If they don't have a t.v., computer, or video game to play with for a day they get so bored so easily.
What happened to playing out side and making up games to play. What happened to having crafts on a rainy day or reading a book. I was so sad to see this summer no kids out riding there bikes or being loud and running around the neighborhood. Its a crime really.

Shane, I could NOT agree more!

Jess, I know it! I have found myself falling into the same trap as an adult though. Sometimes I have a problem not being "connected" or "plugged in." When I notice I'm getting too attached to my phone or ipod, I try making an extra effort to go running/walking without an ipod, or spend some time just thinking and pondering.

That little clip is silly funny. Hannah, I don't have kids...but when we do I know Adam will help them be creative. I don't think I'm good at making things, I'm more creative in my writing and poetry. The husband is awesome at making stuff, drawing, carving. He's generally pretty awesome! I hope he passes the gene on to our kids xx

I love Elf, what can I say?! I'm sure Adam will pass the gene along! That will definitely be fun to discover when you do have kids though!
