Why Creativity Matters. Even for Project Managers

Cultural and creative industries contribute up to 10% of the GDP in some developing countries and generate about 30 million jobs worldwide, employing more people aged 15-29 than any other sector. 

Leaders in Oklahoma have been pushing an intentional strategy to address creativity in their state. Led by the non-profit group Creative Oklahoma, this initiative has brought together leaders from business, government, non-profit, culture and education to create an environment where creativity may flourish.

Creative Oklahoma’s relentless focus on the intersection of commerce, culture and education has either been directly responsible or been a catalyst to advancements in the state’s creativity and innovation efforts as well as in positioning the state to be competitive on a global basis in the future. Leaders from creative districts around the world will gather at the World Creativity Forum to learn some of the lessons from Oklahoma as well as to share their own strategies and knowledge about how to intentionally plan, nurture and grow successful regional efforts to spur on creativity and innovation.
