Creativity has no borders. It is not restricted to a place or time.

Join artist Mary Kroetsch at Riverside Park’s big picnic shelter and engage in small talk by completing the sentence “Creativity is…” with a single word scribed in any fashion. Then using supplied tools, make the word scream loudly with any kind of mark making. Consider beautiful words made ugly and ugly words made beautiful.

The aim of this activity is to offer a safe place and space for participants, plus a little time, to share something that a simple three word sentence can say, empowering community to redefine a public space as a creative-led conversation forum.

Conversation not only conveys and sparks ideas but also enthusiasm and passion. Everyone’s experiences, expertise, and opinions are unique. Sharing them with others can foster a creative environment. And a creative environment is open and welcoming to many people coming together for a brief moment of understanding, tolerance and unity.

The “Creativity Is” sentences will provide inspiration for a future installation at Guelph Civic Museum.
