Creativity, Play, and the Imagination Conference at Teachers College (May 26-May 28, 2011)

The Call for Proposals deadline for Creativity, Play, and the Imagination, to be held at Teachers College, Columbia University from May 26 to May 28, 2011, has been extended to February 14, 2011. In thinking of the conference as a play of ideas rather than presentation of ideas, we encourage proposals that promote uncommon levels of interaction with the aim of broadening our own practices and perspectives by learning from one another in playful creativity and creative play. For submission information and other details, please refer to the conference website.

With this update, the organizers for the conference are also pleased to announce a preliminary lineup of featured presenters who will help spark creative interaction amongst all participants. These include Fred Goodman, Maxine Greene, Chadwick Jenkins, and Tony Wagner.

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together educators, artists, game-makers and scholars from all disciplines to reflect on and experience creativity as a central site for learning and everyday living. We welcome your submissions along with suggestions to help make this an engaging, dynamic, and productive gathering.
