Americans for the Arts (AFTA) recently released wonderful new TV commercials promoting the importance of the arts. Click here to view them. The big message … the ‘arts’ inspire creativity and many other very beneficial things. For those who don’t consider themselves artistically inclined, please know … it’s not about being or becoming an ‘artist’. It’s about being inspired to be CREATIVE. ‘Artists’ (or those claiming to be artists) do not have a monopoly on creativity. The nurse, the accountant, the sales person, the plumber, the fisherman, the city planner, the volunteer, the management consultant, the business developer, the spouse, the dentist, the attorney, the school teacher, etc. are all capable of meaningful and important creativity too.
The folks at the Harvard Business Review hopped on the bandwagon a few years ago. Click here to visit Harvard Business Online and read the latest posting on this subject.
Whatever you do … keep your ‘Muse’ with you. EVERYONE can be CREATIVE and MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
AFTA … You Rock. And we salute you!
