Inciting Imagination EDU
with Stephen Hurley
Economist Milton Friedman once wrote, "Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around." This series of conversations is based on the belief that, if we're going to have good ideas lying around, we need to nurture—even INCITE—imagination. Join us as we explore with scholars, journalists, educators and policy thinkers about what it means to focus on imagination—in its many different forms and iterations!
