What Can Five Wet Monkeys Teach Us About Creativity?
Chautauqua Institution - Chautauqua Amphitheater
Sparking a Culture of Creativity and Innovation

Col. Casey Haskins, an extremely accomplished military officer and professor at West Point Academy, uses psychology, philosophy, and "out of the box thinking" to create a new train of thought for successful problem solving.

New ideas and new ways of looking may provide the answers to challenges to U.S. competitiveness in business, education, government, and health care. In this week, our guests will reveal how they have created cultures of creativity that foster innovation. We’ll define “design thinking” and learn about collaborations that extend knowledge across disparate fields and add value to society, products and services. We will discover how creativity can be taught and learned, and how to inspire creative confidence in ourselves and others.

Chautauqua, according to the late, great Teddy Roosevelt, is "the most American thing in America." It's also the country's oldest ideas festival. Since its founding in 1874, Chautauqua has attracted the likes of Amelia Earhart, FDR and Susan B. Anthony. The rich tradition continues in 2011. Speakers include New York Times contributor Stanley Fish, groundbreaking religious commentator Karen Armstrong, leading foreign policy analyst Robin Wright, noted historian Gordon Wood and several others. Take advantage of this exclusive offer from and the Chautauqua Institution, and join the discussion as these important thought leaders address the most pressing issues facing America and the world.
