Creativity and Change

Wednesday morning, Rose Community Foundation hosted Creativity and Change: The Jewish Innovation Ecosystem in Boulder, Denver and Beyond. The event featured these speakers:

  • Caryn Aviv, University of Colorado at Boulder and Storahtelling
  • Felicia Herman, Natan
  • Shawn Landres, Jumpstart

Innovation, creativity and change have always been critical elements of flourishing Jewish communities. Innovation can happen anywhere, and can come from anyone. Sometimes innovation is embraced rapidly and easily; at other times, it meets resistance.

In recent years, a Jewish renaissance and renewal has been catalyzed by Jewish social entrepreneurs through both start-up organizations and established communal institutions. Denver and Boulder are playing a critical local role in this global phenomenon.”

There was a bit of “backstory” during the meeting, with some participants using Twitter to engage with each other while the event was taking place. To demo some of the innovation on the web today, we’re using Storify to share what’s known as “curated content” gathered from today’s tweets, Facebook postings, and content on the web. Let us know what you think!

Thank you to Rose Community Foundation for hosting this session, it was a terrific opportunity to connect and learn!

  1. I know I'm old and in the way, but I didn't like the use of "storify" to cover this event. I couldn't get out of the tweets etc. anything that was actually said at the event or even in what context innovation was being disucussed. There was no real coverage of the event as far as I can tell. Just one man's opinion.
