Creative World — DC

July 16-30, 2016 in Washington, DC

Creative World highlights the global importance of six interactive concepts: creativity, design, imagination, innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship (in all its varied cultural, social, and commercial forms). When two or more of these six concepts are put into play with one another, serious positive transformations across commerce, culture, education, and government frequently occur.
