Conversation Circle: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

January 19 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a discussion of Sir Ken Robinson’s TED Talk: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

About this event

Our conversation circle is like a book club, but without requiring any prep work! We will watch a short video together and then discuss. Perfect for the mom looking for an intellectual conversation, but not feeling like committing to reading a whole book by a certain date! 😉

Why don’t we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson believed that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies — far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity — are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson said. It’s a message with deep resonance. Robinson’s first TED Talk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006.

Join us as we watch Sir Ken Robinson’s 20 minute TED Talk on Creativity and our Education System.
