Join the Creativity Studies Lab at West Los Angeles College for our second annual Creative Edge Conference on U.N. World Creativity and Innovation Day: April 21, 2018!
According to the 2017 Bloomberg Report, creativity is the number one trait CEOs seek in future employees. We are told we need to be effective critical and creative thinkers, yet have rarely been exposed to tools and techniques to help us cultivate our creativity. The Creativity Studies Lab has a simple aim: to promote creativity on campus and to prepare for the increasingly creative workplace.
The Creative Edge features a diverse array of speakers sharing how creativity has impacted them in their personal, educational, and professional endeavors, with take-away strategies for attendees.
