THE PILLARS OF OUR PROGRAMMING ARE 10 PRINCIPLES OF CREATIVITY
Through our curriculum, Learn with Creative Confidence, teachers learn to integrate the 10 Principles into all aspects of the educational setting, building students’ self-efficacy and social, emotional, and cognitive skills.
CREATIVE CONFIDENCE BUILDS SELF-EFFICACY
THE CHOOSE CREATIVITY AWARDS
The CCAs celebrate and honor the world’s most inspiring and impactful creators — fierce trailblazers as we like to call them. The honorees are unique in transcending fields and industries — spanning the arts, sciences, technology, and education. The awards show inspires and entertains, while promoting creativity’s critical role throughout our communities, economy, and society.
All proceeds from the CCAs, our main fundraiser, fund the delivery of our flagship Learn with Creative Confidence curriculum to schools and after-school programs across the country.
THE STORY OF CHOOSE CREATIVITY
Marina and Kevin Krim established the Lulu & Leo Fund, which evolved into Choose Creativity, in memory of their children Lulu and Leo, who were lost in a tragedy in October 2012. The organization’s work seeks to honor the role of creativity in their lives. Marina and Kevin developed the 10 Principles of Creativity directly from their experience of rebuilding their family and lives. To date, Choose Creativity has reached nearly 1,400 educators and 24,000 kids.
