Virginia Imagination Conversation at Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts
Imagination is crucial for America to compete in the 21st century.
On October 19, 2011, Wolf Trap hosted The Virginia Imagination Conversation at the Center for Education at Wolf Trap. The Imagination Conversation is a project of Lincoln Center Institute (LCI), the educational cornerstone of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and a leader in developing skills of inquiry, imagination, and creativity. LCI launched this initiative in 2009 to encourage and facilitate nationwide panel discussions among government, business and cultural leaders on these important topics.
At the Virginia Imagination Conversation, Wolf Trap convened leaders from a cross section of industries, including technology, arts, education and media to explore how we can cultivate imagination and creativity in our schools and communities. Findings and action items from this conversation will contribute to a national Imagination Conversation in Washington D.C. later this year.
