An infectious movement designed to bring back the creative side of those who have lost "touch" with their inner child, through different programs, spaces and mediums. To spark creativity and leave the fear of failure and insecurities behind.
We've all been to Uncle Ted's house. A middle-aged, average type of guy with a modest and conservative lifestyle, who has spent the last 20+ years in the workforce. As part of his daily routine, he sits at his living room couch behind a stack of paperwork, makes phone calls to clients and goes out to the hardware store. You stumble upon a box that says "memorabilia", and inside you find pictures and artifacts of Ted of when he was younger. A photo of when he used to build puppets out of milk cartons with his dad, a small dictionary of an invented new language written with his sister Pam, and score boards when he used to host throwing competitions of cereal box playing cards on the kitchen table with his friends and neighbors. You wonder.. where did this person go? It's hard to believe that this once fun and creative kid became such a boring and monotonous creature. Then you think, wouldn't there be a way to bring back his inner child? A way to help him reclaim his long forgotten creativity?
Maybe then he could help generate out-of-the-box ideas which would increase productivity at work, help turn everyday habits into something fun and exciting, and help him create and develop events together with members of his own community, making his weekends brighter, more fulfilling and happier person overall.
The Creativity Virus Movement is a contagious flu-like movement that spreads quickly and would be composed of a series of programs or bugs, in which kids from local communities would design and develop, then implement together with the young and young-at-heart adults like Uncle Ted. The goal is to work together to inspire and apply those creative skills into their daily lives. The movement would cause a positive impact in both the younger and older generations alike, while empowering the youth and cultivating their creative confidence.
