(Creatively) Leaping to Conclusions

Thursday, October 15, 2020

5:30 PM-6:30 PM

Natalie Nixon PhD changes lives through ideas. She is a creativity strategist who happily integrates wonder and rigor into her life and work. In her new book, The Creativity Leap: Unleash Curiosity, Improvisation and Intuition at Work, she does something brilliant and heretical—she declares that creativity is a teachable phenomenon. She describes creativity as equal parts structure and looseness, focus and ambiguity, rules and no rules, daring us to suggest that we all have it in us. Natalie will be interviewed by Jacobie Smith ’20, commencement speaker at the 2020 Westphal Graduation, on Thursday, October 15 at 5:30 p.m. EDT.


This event is part of the Twilight Lecture Series, made possible by the Westphal College Department of Architecture, Design & Urbanism, Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship, and The ExCITe Center.
