Whether solving a problem, persuading a friend or writing a Facebook post, in large and small ways we all rely on our creativity to move through everyday life. In its second year, the UI Creative Matters lecture series invites participants to foster personal innovation by drawing inspiration from the invited artists, thinkers, builders and doers in this year’s series.
