The IUP Center for Creativity and Change will host a workshop on creative thinking on Friday, May 19, in Greensburg.

The one-day event will feature Cyndi Burnett, an associate professor in the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State. The workshop, titled “Creative Thinking for the 21st Century,” can be relevant to professionals in many domains, including education, business, and nonprofit sectors.

It will be held at the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit 7 in Greensburg. The program is offered in part by a grant from the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County, which is affiliated with the Pittsburgh Foundation.

Burnett is a consulting editor for the Journal of Creative Behavior and was featured in a New York Times article in 2014. She is the co-editor of the Big Questions in Creativity book series and co-author of Weaving Creativity into Every Strand of Your Curriculum and My Sandwich is a Spaceship: Creative Thinking for Parents and Young Children.

In this highly experiential workshop, participants will be introduced to the basics of creative problem-solving and ways to stimulate their own innate creative abilities.

Early registration is encouraged, as space is limited to the first 25 registrants, and an early registration discounted rate is available until April 14.
