Unearthing Classic Articles from Previous Issues of The Voice Magazine

April 21 is World Creativity and Innovation Day, capping off World Creativity and Innovation WeekThe Voice‘s archives are brimming with articles on creativity, and it was a challenge to narrow our focus to just two.

Ontario poaches Alberta’s talent.  In 2003, AU bid a fond farewell to Alan Davis, who moved on from his position of AU’s VP, Academic, after over seven years.  “During his term at AU, Davis says he’s enjoyed his interaction with faculty, and the opportunity to support their research, their creativity, and to link that to the teaching. He is proud of the part he was able to play in the implementation of Prior Learning Assessment, articulation, and the launching of collaborations between Athabasca University and universities and colleges all over the country.”  News from AU – AU bids farewell to Alan Davis, August 6, 2003.

Take your creative spirit on a date.  Columnist Hazel Anaka follows author Julia Cameron’s advice to replenish her well of creativity.  “My dates have included exploring flea markets and junk shops, fingering fabrics and trims at Fanny’s and Fabricland, absorbing the scents and colors at greenhouses and nurseries, checking out art supply stores and galleries, looking at paint swatches and wood at lumberyards, reading snippets in bookstores.”  From Where I Sit – Artist Dates, October 13, 2004.
