Myth Buster #1: Creativity – It’s Not For Everyone

TEDxOMAHA Salon on Creativity: Time to do some Myth Busting – Is Creativity Only for Artists and Children

On Monday, July 17th at 6:00 p.m. TEDxOMAHA Salon is going to plunge headfirst into the world of Creativity, which incidentally is a top individual, team, and leadership skill.

Myths are all around us, and that includes myths about creativity. For example, “an individual is not creative because they cannot draw.” What do you think? Is creativity being able to draw or dance or play the piano? Are all children naturally creative? Is creativity a mysterious Pandora’s Box? What does the word ‘creativity’ conjure up for you? Prepare to cast aside well-worn adages, myths, and illusions around creativity and innovation. Time to take hold of your own creative self and explore how it ties into life, work, and motivation.

Join Dr. Strawberry Olive and the TEDxOMAHA team at KANEKO on Monday, July 17th, from 6:00-7:00 PM as we explore how to unveil, appreciate and leverage our own creative superpower in less than 60 minutes!

KANEKO is located at 1111 Jones Street in Downtown Omaha.

PARKING: There are a few metered spots alongside the building on Jones. It is recommended that you park at the garage on 10th & Jackson Street.

About TEDxOmaha
TEDxOmaha is an independently organized TEDx event. As a part of the global TED community, we connect locally to explore the ideas and situations that affect our cultures, environments, and minds. Most people are introduced to this remarkable collection of human experiences through recorded TED Talks. Through technology, we can hear stories of discovery, heartache, joy, introspection, and imagination from some of the world’s most amazing people. By creating events in Omaha, we produce an experience based on TED’s principles.

Who attends TEDxOmaha? Five hundred of our community’s most curious, forward-thinking people. Activists, artists, philanthropists, modern-day philosophers, policymakers, stay-at-home parents, and more. You, too, can gather with amazing people from our region who share their insights and accomplishments. It helps us witness what is happening – and what is possible – so we can be inspired to take bigger steps together. TEDxOmaha is held annually in October and offers monthly TEDxOmahaSalon events at KANEKO.
