Memphis' Creative Conversation

Working CreativelyUpdate: one of the panelists, entrepeneur Eric Mathews, has posted his answers to the Creative Conversation questions on his blog. As some of this great stuff didn't make it into the talk on Wednesday, it's a web extra, and a good example of the creativity of the discussion and the panelists.

Last Wednesday, Memphis held a fascinating Creative Conversation, Working Creatively, at the Memphis College of Art.

The panelists (and audience) discussed:
  • empty buildings and creativity
  • micro-finance
  • muni wifi
  • talent attraction vs talent growth
  • creativity and poverty
  • official Memphis' part in creativity (including a critical and balanced recap of that history by an audience member)
  • models for best creative practices
It was a great mixture of the honest and the hopeful, the critical and the creative.

For your listening pleasure and our future creativity, here's the complete audio.

The entire conversation, including introduction.

Or if you want to take it a piece at a time, the conversation separated into 3 relatively equal pieces, plus the intro:

The conversation, part 1.

The conversation, part 2.

The conversation, part 3.

I heard about this event but I didn't know there was audio. Thanks for the heads up!

I'm sharing this post into my FriendFeed stream. Hopefully another interested person will see it there.
