Torrance Center Conferences
The concept of “wild colts” was one that Dr. Ellis Paul Torrance employed when referring to the power of the human imagination—a drive that, when directed optimally, leads to creative flourishing. The Torrance Center Conferences are special events that bring us valuable insights about creativity in all its manifestations from those who know best—flourishing wild colts!
The Torrance Center Conferences take the form of mini-symposia, workshops, and discussions. These events are open to the community at large and feature expert perspectives from scholars, educators, artists, and entrepreneurs. A wide range of topics and themes are explored during these conferences. What they all have in common is that they aid vitally in furthering our understanding of creativity.
