Choose Creativity Celebration

June 18, 2016

We can't say enough about the positive energy and joy that radiated from our Choose Creativity celebration on June 18th. We sincerely thank all of you who participated and shared! What we most loved about this celebration is all the different ways you all chose creativity. Scrolling through the fantastic events and noticing how they were not just about visual art was so exciting -- creativity spans all passions and disciplines, not to mention cultures -- we saw events across at least a dozen countries, from France to Uganda, Ireland to the Philippines!
