Cultivating Creativity, Connection & Community | TEDx Ursuline College

creativity in motion

I’m super excited to share my TEDx Ursuline College talk that went live last week!

It was an amazing opportunity to share my love of social media, creativity, and community building…. It was a great experience to talk about the possibilities social networking offers to connect all these passions together!

I’ve been able to creatively connect with soooo many through social networking– the art-based collaborations & gathering together that can happen online is always so inspiring!

Dawn in Midwest City, Oklahoma welcomes the adventure to her creative space!

As a re-cap on what this awesome canvas pouch has experienced and the creative goodness it and all the participants have spread, so far there’s been #56 destinations over thousands and thousands of miles. This project started in 2012 @ 6 Degrees of Creativity Headquarters in the US and another 30+ US stops, then traveled to Canada, the UK, Italy, Singapore, India, Australia, New Zealand, and came back to the US this year for another 15 stops!

Over this time, participants have filled up the pouch over and over again with different art materials and artsy stuff for the next person on the travel route to receive and create art with for others as a gift of kindness, gratitude, and generosity.  Watching this creative chain and connection has been amazing!

Very good news to share about The Random Acts of Art Adventure after an almost 3 month hiatus in Washington: the project is alive and well again in California, finally making it to Paulette in Woodside– Yay!   I was soooo relieved and excited to see the photo below kindly sent by Paulette (thank you!) of the canvas pouch & creative passport, which arrived a couple of days ago from Olympia:

Stop #49: Woodside, California with Paulette

Wow! What a long journey of creative goodness it has been, which is now going into its third year.  A dozen destinations remain and I can’t wait to see the adventure keep moving again to new creative spaces throughout California, in Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina, and back to Ohio.

I continue to learn and discover so much as a result of this process, its participants, and each stop the pouch visits, which includes revisiting lessons in patience, faith, trust, gratitude, and the power of community & creativity. I am so thrilled that the adventure is continuing onward and eagerly look forward to keep sharing its remaining activity and travel updates with you this year.  🙂

The past month has been quite the adventure for our Random Acts of Art pouch, currently traveling in Australia for stops #41-44.  After almost a month in delivery transit from Queensland to New South Wales, the creative goodness safely arrived to Fiona in Sydney- Whew!Creative Goodness on the Move Again Downunder: Random Acts of Art Adventure | 6 Degrees of Creativity BlogIt was such a relief to see Fiona’s photo of the pouch and know it was received OK and finally in her creative hands!

Creative Goodness on the Move Again Downunder: Random Acts of Art Adventure | 6 Degrees of Creativity BlogInspired by the intention of this project, Fiona worked on a series of Permission Cards that she intended to leave in places around her neighborhood (!):
