How are we cultivating creativity in the next generation? Join us for an evening discussion with three leaders in early childhood and K-12 education:

  • Tony Evers, State Superintendent of Public Instruction
  • Deborah Gilpin, President/CEO, Madison Children’s Museum
  • Ruth Maegli, Chief Academic Officer, Milwaukee Public Schools

This is the fourth talk from the Academy-led Wisconsin Creativity Initiative. Developed by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters in partnership with the Wisconsin Arts Board, Arts Wisconsin, and the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, the Wisconsin Creativity Initiative seeks to examine the elements of a creative economy that make the most sense for Wisconsin, and the ways we can harness these elements to make our communities and our state stronger. Our aim for the Wisconsin Creativity Initiative is to change the conversation about the power of creativity to improve Wisconsin’s economy, educational systems, and quality of life.
