UN World Creativity and Innovation Day


Friday, April 21


World Creativity and Innovation Day exists because Bow Valley local Marci Segal wanted to encourage everyone to use their natural abilities by generating new ideas and making new decisions to make the world a better place.

Activities to mark the day began in 2002 and grew. In 2017 the day was recognized and became a United Nations International Day of Observance. It is now celebrated in more than 127 countries all over the world!

The theme of World Creativity and Innovation Day in 2023 is Step Out and Innovate. Take positive action to improve the world around you.

For World Creativity and Innovation Day, artsPlace is proud to be launching the artsPlace Open Mic Nights. These will provide free space for musicians and poets in the community to connect with each other and share their art. The Innovator of World Creativity and Innovation Day, Marci Segal, will be present on our first open mic on April 20, to chat with the artists and ask them about their creativeness.
