Under what conditions does creativity thrive? How do we nurture and support it?From this series of discussions, the Sam Francis Foundation hopes to come away with a shared point of view about the challenges and opportunities inherent in the notion of bringing, “Creativity in Learning” to the forefront of our educational practice. The goal is to understand where the foundation can help and how they can make a difference.Join the conversation by following along on Twitter (@crtvtymttrs), Facebook (@Creativity Matters) and Instagram (@Creativitymatters14). The roundtables will be live-tweeted and followers are encouraged to participate by posting with the following hashtags: #SFF4CreativityAs President Obama stated in his September, 2014 Presidential Proclamation, “To meet the challenges ahead, we must harness the skills and ingenuity of our children and grandchildren and instill in them the same passion and persistence that has driven centuries of progress and innovation.
