  25. Becoming a Creative Genius (again)!

    January 29, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Seymour Center

    Did you know that 98% of us are born with abilities that NASA labels as “creative genius?” However, only 2% of us perform at that level by the age of 25. Neuroscientists have recently identified three important changes in the aging brain that, taken together, make later life the best time to reclaim our creative genius. For nearly 20 years, Carl Nordgren has been helping entrepreneurs, design professionals, and students grow their creative and entrepreneurial talents. He has adapted proven content into a fast paced highly interactive two-hour workshop. This workshop will help you leverage the changes taking place in your brain to reclaim that creative genius for your next big project, and to add new dimensions to your personal life. All participants will receive a Creative Genius Growth Plan.

  30. The Ties That Bind Documentary Film - Seymour

    January 30, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Seymour Center

    The Ties That Bind is a personal documentary memoir by filmmaker Diana Newton that captures her family’s journey of conflict, loss, and adaptation in response to her younger sibling’s transgender change. It is a searing look at a Southern family wrestling with each other and their beliefs, exposing the shadow landscape of the culture wars at play as they seek a new normal. While the film foreshadows today’s bathroom politics, it is far less a “transgender” story than a complex family story that weaves together a portrait of their imperfections and the love that remains intact even so. This film has been at many film festivals and featured on this year’s PBS Online Film Festival. After the film, there will be Q&A time with Diana. Min: 10/Max: 80
