Graphics created from around the world for #wciw2017 – 16 years later

World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21, (WCID) was born 16 years ago today, May 25, 2001, in Toronto, Canada, in response to a newspaper headline that read, “Canada in Creativity Crisis“.

WCID’s vision is for everyone around the world at the same time, uniting in creativeness, enabling people to use their creativity to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too.

This year, the United Nations adopted a resolution to include World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21 among its days of observance.

This year, countless individuals, organizations, clubs, groups, schools, municipalities all over the planet sent messages and created opportunities for new thinking to happen; we connected in our creativeness worldwide. (stats coming soon)

Let’s do the same next year and every year following.  Mark World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21 on your calendar today.

Below are some graphics created in our #worldcreativityandinnovationday twitter hashtag.

The Creative Museum – MuseumNext

4b288638-557c-485f-ae5c-b221945b90a3Here’s a creative museum activity in the Uk during World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15-21, 2016.

 

THE CREATIVE MUSEUM
18 APR 2016
16:00 – 18:00
CHESTER BEATTY LIBRARY, DUBLIN CASTLE
THE CREATIVE MUSEUM

In collaboration with a range of local partners, museums professionals and MuseumNext participants, the Creative Museum Project and the Chester Beatty Library will stage a high-paced, interactive and fun event about creativity and maker culture in museums.

In a relaxed, open environment, participants will be treated to a curated and highly interactive programme of lightning talks, fast workshops, and social mingling.

Contributors to the programme include:

Jo Ann Sunderland Bowe – Heritec
Jasper Visser – Inspired by Coffee
Jenny Siung – Chester Beatty Library
Ian Brunswick – Science Gallery
The topic: creativity, makers, and museums

Museums are often viewed as dead spaces. Yet museums contain incredible collections and inspire creativity, learning, and curiosity. How can museums tap into the creativity of their communities, maker culture and – ultimately – their own creativity, to face their various challenges and be better institutions? The event will present various perspectives on these questions, showcase best practices and invite participants to explore their own creativity.
