With Andromeda Turre, performer and curator of bespoke music, host of "Growing Up Jazz"

"In a world full of copies, be an original" - sometimes this advice is easier said than done. In communities where athletic prowess and physical brawn are revered, oftentimes creativity is not equally encouraged or celebrated. Creative kids can sometimes be overlooked even though research shows that innovation and creativity are highly desirable attributes in college, careers, and other arenas in life. Join this discussion to hear about the ways we can foster and support creativity in our children.

Registration will open soon.
