Are You Curious About Your Curiosity?
Are you still inquisitive and child-like in your discovery of the world or has life got you feeling disengaged and apathetic? In this session on Cultivating Curiosity Through Creativity, educator, entrepreneur and Olympian Jessica Tudos takes us on a journey that highlights the benefits, techniques and pitfalls commonly linked to curiosity. Although cultivating curiosity in a results-based system such as education can be challenging, Jessica shows us how a deck of cards inclusive of hundreds of creative ideas can foster unbridled curiosity in all of us.
