The Creative Commons: Finding our Uncommon Creativity for the Common Good – with Barry Green
February 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
How do we recognize and honor the creative lion within each of us? How do we use our uncommon creativity for the Common Good?
In this time together, we will open conversation around Creativity, introducing the 6 thinking hats of Edward de Bono, and exploring the connection of Virtues and Creativity; inspired by the work of the Virtues Project and Personality Dimensions. The Session provides opportunity to consider and consult on the relationship of Service and Creativity, and to better understand the practice of Excellence and Creativity.
The workshop is more of a ‘playshop’, and Barry Lewis Green endeavors to play with Curiosity and Creativity and have some fun doing it. No role playing here. The only role you bring is YOU… extrovert, introvert or anywhere in between. All are welcome and needed, and will benefit by understanding further:
- That creativity is a virtue within each of us and not restricted to those with “artistic” talents
- That embracing our creativity opens us to inspiration, allowing us to solve problems in new and surprising ways
- That discovering our own talents is a gift to the world.
- That the quality of our lives is directly linked to the quality of our contributions

In 2001, Barry became a Certified Tutor/Trainer through The Ruhi Institute for spiritual and community development.

Barry humbly suggests that he has been and is a ‘community guy’, in the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors. Work with the Departments of Labour and Rural. Agricultural and Northern Development, and Canada Employment and Immigration bore that out in his early career. Then with Atlantic Canada Plus and working at CNA as a community college business educator, he continued with a career in community and economic development that now spans the federal and provincial public service, the private sector, and the community sector. As both a speaker and business educator he has delivered on education, leadership, and business management as a vehicle for community, economic and business development to hundreds of thousands of youth and adults across North America. He works one to one, and in small and larger groups … with Entrepreneurs, Educators and Emerging Leaders … as leaders seeking to unite and inspire… to more effectively respond to change… and constructively create it. Through it all, the message is character leadership and education… noble, together, strong.
