|Creative Education Project|
Creative Alliance Milwaukee received a grant from Northwestern Mutual Foundation last fall to explore the re-framing of arts education to creative education in order to 1) expand the community educational programming beyond arts to include design, film/media and new creative technologies, and 2) to create a better vocabulary for dialogue between arts education and the business community through a focus on creativity skill development.
This project involved a community-wide Advisory Council as well as significant internet research along with in-depth interviews with local senior human resource executives on 'creativity' in the workplace. The findings, conclusions and recommended next steps have profound implications for building a bridge between the self-identified creativity needs of the workplace and the creative education offerings of this community. This was an exciting project and we are very grateful for the Northwestern Mutual Foundation's belief in this exploration and the hard work of all members of the Advisory Council. Read the report >

How to Be Creative
Creativity can seem like magic. We look at people like Steve Jobs and Bob Dylan, and we conclude that they must possess supernatural powers denied to mere mortals like us, gifts that allow them to imagine what has never existed before. They're "creative types." We're not. Read More >
