CI2LAB

The CI2 Lab is an open-research environment where collaboration is key and creativity flourishes through interaction and exchange of concepts theories and processes.
Creative Intelligence, Innovation, Collaboration, Lab

The Ci2 Studio stands for Creative Intelligence, Innovation, Collaboration, the order of these four words is non-essential as it is only the words themselves that are significant. In fact, we encourage the rearrangement of the words. We see this as an expression of change and fluidity, elemental aspects of the creative process. The studio's mission is to develop individual and group creativity in an open concept experiential learning environment. Participants develop creative problem solving, critical thinking and marketable skills that foster innovation and community engagement. The emphasis is in collaboration on cross-disciplinary design projects that demonstrate creative research, scholarship and innovation and have the potential for creative expression and / or commercialization.

TedXDirigo

Raphael Speaks on Creativity at TEDx Dirigo In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
