FRAN0001For the WCIW April 15-21, we scheduled several events on the thema : “Express your “I” in Paris. The events are free and welcomed to all :
– a round table with a panel of artists, scientifics, artisans. Several experts in mathematics, music, art and sculptor paintings, violin-makers… will explain how they consider the links between their object of research, their life and their personality,

  • a visit of Paris for discovering composers and interprets famous places
  •  a creative workshop/brainstorming to improve quality of life and express better what we are day after day (this meeting is lead by a psychologist and an artist).
  •  a creative workshop market (sort of junk shop) to benefit to our non-profit organization.

Our non-profit organization Inventio is created to serve the projects of today’s young talents, a sort of research laboratory, of platform of expression, serving their creativity.

We  scheduled over 2016-2017 a concerts series called “Express your ‘I’. Each month, a novel performance, distinguished by its personal underlining thematic cord, linking the works between them, a poetic, esthetic or educational link. Red wire of the season : Program themes beginning with the letter i around meaning with playfulness. For examples concerts’ programs and titles : “Intemporel”, “Impressionnisme”, “Inaccessibles maîtres : les compositeurs face à leurs modèles”, “Isentropique”, etc.
We are very pleased and honored to become a partner of WCiW.

Studio Be aims to nurture “practical creativity” in youth while using various digital mediums like photography, filmmaking, design and social media platforms. Through a process-based hands-on approach, working with different creative thinking tools, inspirational instructors, open forums with renowned speakers from different industries, real life relevant projects with the aim of impacting the society to having our very own youth creative exhibitions, we challenge the conventional perception of the need of being an artist to be creative.

WCIW 17 will be integrated into all of my courses and the course syllabus. PPCo’s (Pluses, Potentials and Concerns) of involvement in WCIW proved that students empowered themselves with the planning out of WCIW week, something that many students shared they had never been asked to do. It’s a Beautiful thing!
The actual act of creativity will emerge when the Spring 2017 begins. Erie Community College, Buffalo, NY

We will use our media channels and global partner network to promote challenge (and some solutions) to the question: “What might be all of the ways we could improve the world’s ability to collaborate and creatively solve problems?” New & Improved, New York


Creative Aerobics is my act of creativity for WCIW2017.
Creative Aerobics is a radical new way to speed up the creative process through the technique of `creative aerobics’. This concept uses four mental exercises that develop elasticity between the left and the right brain – the analytical and creative sides – allowing them access to solutions outside their present problem-solving techniques.

Key features of this technique are: it is process driven; participative; increases productivity of ideas, without anxiety; and it is rooted in what participants do on a regular basis.

Along with two editions of a book, third one in the making, hundreds of professionals using it successfully, a TEDx talk has also been done on it. Creative Aerobics will be a fitting addition to the WCIW.
