Gallagher’s speech, “Creatives Wanted: Artists Need Not Apply,” addressed how “creative talent” may not be defined in the same traditional manner or for the same traditional roles which you might think. He discussed how the workforce defines “creative,” the types of skills needed to succeed in the workplace as well as the role of education preparing future generations for the workplace.
Creativity World Forum in Oklahoma is one of the largest creativity and innovation conferences in the world, inspiring a broad cross-sector of students, business leaders and community leaders. It’s the only event to be held in North America in 2015 that brings global leaders in education, business, creativity and innovation together.
