Creativity Forum=Life Changing

This week held the biggest epiphany of all!!! I am so so thankful that I chose to go to the creativity forum! I have told plenty of people since Tuesday that the most amazing part of the forum was seeing creativity in SO many fields. Whenever I thought of creativity, in a very narrow mindset, was basics; such as painting, sculpting, having a specific talent, and being innovative, but I thought of it just in the fine arts. It was such a eye opening experience to be surrounded by entrepreneurs, legislatures, aero-space engineers, psychologist, retail owners, and fellow students all with the common goal of “take action”! It is about being a dreamer, but making the dreams come true! It was also a great experience to see people pushing for arts in education.
I think there is many,many important lessons that I picked up from the forum. All 28 pages of notes that I took from the forum proves that. I will definitely keep my notebook with me. A big lesson I learned was to take notes, make goals, take action, but importantly to try and make that dream or idea a reality. I doubt myself a lot when it comes to innovative ideas or when designing, but I sat through the a workshop about “breaking the barriers of creativity”. I feel I got the most from that workshop because I really connected with him about what is holding me back; myself. I will carry this knowledge with me forever. It is such an important lesson for everyone to learn.
I anticipate applying these lessons through informing others of the knowledge I gained. Also, looking for others to collaborate with in other disciplines. As the interior design, aero-space engineers, and NASA has proven here at OSU options are out there for collaboration that, I especially, didn’t know could exist.
I would love to know how to sign up for next year’s forum!!! It was such an incredible experience.
