In a recent blog post at Creativity and Innovation blog, they recently posted on one state’s mission to become known as The Creativity State. When one thinks of the state of Oklahoma, that’s not usually what comes to mind, usually it’s football, tornadoes, cowboys, or vast amounts of land. That will be no more if the Governor Brad Henry has can change the course of his state. This initiative is not only supported by the governor, but also the businesses and schools of the state. Sir Ken Roberts is the brain behind project, which focuses on creativity in schools, businesses and the culture of the state. They believe that if creativity is started from a young age, their state has the opportunity to flourish.
