Steven Dahlberg, director of the International Centre for Creativity and Imagination in New Milford, CT, will host the Connecticut Imagination Conversation, presented in conjunction with Lincoln Center Institute as part of its 50 Imagination Conversations project. The event will take place on the evening of Monday, April 19th and will be recorded for broadcast on the Connecticut Public Radio program, “Where We Live.”

The Connecticut Conversation will focus on education, community, and leadership, with an eye toward developing an innovative, state-wide agenda. As Dahlberg writes, “Creativity and imagination matter in every aspect of society. Imagination matters for engaging students and teachers in meaningful education. It matters for bringing new ideas into reality to improve the economy. And it matters for helping people express their creative capacities in their work and their communities. We hope to help connect people who want to tap into more of their imagination and apply it for creating positive change across this state.”

This event coincides with work that Dahlberg has been focusing on through a course he teaches at the University of Connecticut-Greater Hartford called “Creativity + Social Change.” Check out the Creativity + Social Change blog to learn what his students have been up to.

The citizens eager to delve into the importance and potential of the imagination are asked to bring their own “imagination story.” […]
