Older people are happier: Laura Carstensen at TEDxWomen 2011 – We’ve added many years to our lifespans, but is the quality of life as good? Surprisingly, yes! Psychologist Laura Carstensen says that as people get older they become happier, more content, and more positive about the world.
The JIS TED-Ed Club is a new student-run group that meets every two weeks. So far, club members have gotten to know each other and brainstormed some answers to the question: “What makes an idea great?”
Is it possible to be uncreative? How can we use the element of randomness to be original? What are you good at? What did you like to do when you were young? Is what you see in a photograph the same as what the photographer wanted you to see? How does an artist take a simple idea and make it a beautiful piece of art?
These were just some of the questions that the participants at TEDxJISSalon: The Artist Inside discussed, doodled, and even danced their way through. Easily the most active of our salons so far, our presenters and performers had all the attendees actively exploring what the creative process is about.
TEDxJISSalon: The Artist Inside, on Saturday, April 7, 9AM – 12PM. It’s sure to be a morning of lively conversations and fun activities shining a light on your creativity.
The Salon will give you one more chance to see the work of photojournalist Amy Smith, who teaches mathematics at the High School. We also have an award-winning student artist asking where ideas come from, a talented trio exploring a musical composition that they performed at TEDxJIS 2018, and a teacher from North Jakarta Intercultural School who will help us unlock our creativity.
