About the Northwestern Creativity Project
Following the launch of the Oklahoma Creativity Project in February 2008, a group of individuals at NWOSU began a series of informal meetings to discuss how the university might position itself to become recognized as a regional center of creativity and innovation. Following the models of the World Creativity Forum and the Oklahoma Creativity Project, we adopted the name Northwestern Creativity Project.
We have thus far adopted four projects and help with a fifth:
Creativity and Innovation in Education: Resources for Educators ~ This collection of resources began as a response to the launching of the Oklahoma Creativity Project in February 2008.
Picture My Weekend ~ annual photography show and workshops, available for citizens of northwestern Oklahoma at no charge; held in Alva's historic Runnymede Hotel. The photography show features the work of area photographers who attend the workshop. This event is open to photographers of all ages and all photography skill levels.
Creativity Project Photowalk ~ The group's first "Photowalk" took place Oct. 2, 2010, on the campus of Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Alva, OK. Participants walked all around the campus taking photos for two hours, then gathered to view a slide show of the results and visit about photography. Other Photowalks are planned.
Arts Northwest Calendar ~ Seeing the need to promote and share information about cultural arts events in Northwestern Oklahoma State University's service areas, the Northwestern Creativity Project created the "Arts Northwest" Calendar of Events and have made it available on the NWOSU web site. The calendar site provides a "Submit Your Event" link where various cultural arts events and activities may be submitted for consideration in the calendar. Other links of interest also are provided on the site.
Summer Art Camp ~ Members of the committee helped create, plan and work at the first Summer Art Camp for young people on the campus of Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Alva, OK. It took place in May 2010. Plans are underway for the next camp.
