New Imagination Conversation Videos are Online

For those of you who haven’t been able to attend any Imagination Conversations, there are, fortunately, many recordings of these events available online. Since 2009, 36 Conversations have taken place across the U.S. We can now add to the list of those that have been recorded the Los Angeles and Florida Conversations.

The Los Angeles Conversation, hosted by the Music Center on May 9 of this year, took the form of a discussion among LA Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy; creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson; and me. The issues we covered included whether imagination and creativity can be taught, why our education systems are biased against imagination, and the possibility of assessing creativity. Video clips from the gathering are here, broken up by topic.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Florida Conversation, held at Ringling College of Art and Design on November 7; here’s that post. Ringling’s YouTube channel has three videos from the event, of President Larry Thompson’s introduction, futurist David Houle’s keynote speech, and the panel itself.

Enjoy the footage, and let us know what you think of it on Twitter—we’re @LCInstitute.
