The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure and the Search for Mastery
Thursday, July 30, 2015

Where do new innovations—new ideas—spring from? It's an enduring enigma, but in this talk, Sarah Lewis offers a new understanding of what enables creative endeavors. In her research, Lewis discovered that many of history’s greatest works, from Nobel Prize-winning discoveries to new inventions to works of art, came out of conversions, corrections and failed attempts.

Sarah Lewis is author of The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. She appears on Oprah's “Power List,” served on President Obama's Arts Policy Committee and is currently the Du Bois Fellow at Harvard University. She has held positions at Yale's School of Art, the Tate Modern, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and her essays have been published in Artforum and The Smithsonian.

Don’t be Late for Your Life
Thursday, July 30, 2015

Our lives can surprise us. What do you do when your life surprises you by completely falling apart? How do you go on with the critical work that we do with our kids? How do you balance the internal agony with the external smile? Cindy Stevenson will share her personal discovery about not being late for her life. Her life fell apart and she was required to reassemble the pieces. She believes that if she can do it…so can you. Be ready for that moment when you are not sure you can go on. You can. Celebrate the magic of our profession; hold on to the hope and the goodness!
