The Virginia Imagination Conversation, hosted by the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, took place on October 19, 2011, at its Center for Education in Vienna, VA. Wolf Trap is one of several organizations currently working with Lincoln Center Institute (LCI) to plan a policy meeting with the U.S. Department of Education that will happen in early 2012 in Washington, D.C., so we were especially eager to see the results of this event.

The Halloween season calls to mind things that frighten us (or, at least, our inner children): ghosts, goblins, haunted houses, witches, creativity. “Wait a minute,” you say. “Creativity?” Yes, according to new research, many people fear creativity and also have trouble recognizing it, whether or not they realize this.

Something practical—now.
