What We Believe
Everyone is a creator and an innovator
The artist finding new material for inspiration, the scientist finding a new theory, the businessperson finding a new market opportunity – in fact, all of us are creators and innovators in every aspect of our lives. The impetus to find the new can come from inside – from an innate desire to change one’s world. Or the impetus can come from the outside – from a need to respond to changes in the world around us. Either way, we are all driven to create and innovate.
商人找到新的市场机遇 —— 事实上，我们所有人都是我们生命各个纬度的创新者和创造者。
寻求创新的原动力可以由内驱动 —— 一股先天携带的改变我们世界的渴望；
抑或是由外驱动 —— 一种应外界的变化而催生的诉求。
Everyone should have the opportunity to develop their
creative and innovative capacities in new directions
New perspectives, contexts, technologies, and tools are all ways of extending our capacities to experience our worlds and express our ideas. Creativity and innovation are innate, but they are powered by the methods of thinking and doing which we acquire.
Everyone is welcome at the NYU Shanghai Program on Creativity + Innovation
