Creativity matters in all aspects of society. If you want to reconnect with your inherent creativity and explore new ways of expressing it, don't miss this series, which will be held at 2 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month at The Silo at Hunt Hill Farm in New Milford, Connecticut. The series will cover topics about creativity in all forms (including, but not limited to, arts) -- creative thinking, creative communities, creativity and education, creativity in organizations, creative persons, the creative process, creative aging, creativity and movement, creativity and spirituality, and more. In the first session on January 10, come and explore the general topic of "what is creativity?" -- plus, who has it, and how one can tap into more creativity both personally and professionally. Steven Dahlberg, who will host the series, also will lead the kick-off session in January. Dahlberg is the head of the International Centre for Creativity and Imagination and teaches "Creativity + Social Change" at the University of Connecticut.

The Creativity Networking Series is presented by The Silo at Hunt Hill Farm and the International Centre for Creativity and Imagination, both based in New Milford, Conn. The series provides a forum for exploring the many facets of creativity and for discovering other people interested in creativity.

He works with the Public and Community Engagement program at the University of Connecticut, where he teaches the "Creativity + Social Change" course. Dahlberg collaborates with artists, scientists, business people, educators, nonprofit and government professionals, and others to help people develop and apply their creativity. His work includes directing international creativity and training conferences, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in creativity, helping toy inventors launch a creativity consulting business, collaborating on participatory public art projects, serving as an adviser to the Guggenheim Museum, and
teaching creativity to incarcerated men. He regularly contributes to various media (including WNPR), edits the Applied Imagination blog, and authored the foreword to Education is Everybody's Business.

Custom cooking classes, shopping, tasting, museum tours, slide shows, and gallery talks are among the offerings for groups and tours visiting Hunt Hill Farm. Located in the Litchfield Hills of western Connecticut, Hunt Hill Farm has been the location of the Silo since 1972 -- a combination cooking school, art gallery, and gourmet kitchenware/food store. Now operating under the auspices of the Hunt Hill Farm Trust as a nonprofit organization for preservation, the farm is also host to the Skitch Henderson Museum and Hunt Hill Farm Land Preserve.
