What does painting a picture, writing a poem, drumming a beat or dancing a ronde have to do with changing the world? Here at COMPAS, we believe that powering creativity using the arts transforms you. And this nurtures your ability to use your power, passion, experience and ideas to impact the community.
Participating in the arts sets you up to personally develop the skill most needed to solve the world’s greatest challenges: creativity!
As creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson says, “Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value.” Creativity means we are continuously developing the ability to think on our feet, iterate possibilities and look at problems and solutions using different perspectives.
Thank you for spending your time with us today. We hope you’ll come back to our blog often as we look at what creative thinking and doing can accomplish. In the meantime, take a gander at COMPAS’ manifesto. I hope you’ll agree with us that our creativity makes us not only better suited to survive in this world, but thrive and contribute.
