Culture is defined by our record of creative endeavors. All forms of governance, language, commerce, art, and celebration are born from the imaginative mind. As a community, mankind can do amazing things, but it is often challenging to harness the courage to set our ideas loose into our external communities. In the first of this series, Raffi will discuss the nature of our creative drives, the systems and processes that have been perpetuated to inhibit our creative energies, methods to allow more creative confidence into our lives, and how to release ourselves from the burden of creativity. 

This live conversation will conclude with a Q&A.
