With Keynote Speaker Michael Howard

As educators, we strive to prepare our children for the world as it is, and most importantly, as it can become when shaped out of our deepest ideals and aspirations. In a world that mocks and thwarts all idealism as unrealistic, we are called to intensify our efforts to awaken a creative spirit in ourselves, our children, and our communities in shaping our human future. How do we awaken creative spirit? Our current challenges appear in a new light when we consider Rudolf Steiner’s cryptic comment about the need for a rudder of education “to turn 180 degrees towards the artistic,” along side his view that “it is individuality that must work in the school… and Art is the awakener.”
