From October 14 -17, 2014 the Acre 20 International Creativity Conference will be held at Bela Bela, South Africa. This annual event, started by Dr Kobus Neethling 20 years ago, will feature presenters and workshop leaders from all over the world.
Kobus was one of the keynote presenters at our own international Creativity & Cultural Diversity conference organised by Caroline Fryer Bolingbroke some years ago. At that event, Kobus emphasised the importance of strategic creativity in today's world which he saw as characterised by unselfishness, caring and compassion, but also wealth creation. He stressed the need to use such wealth to ensure a healthy people and a healthy planet. It was up to us, he argued, to decide if that was the kind of world we wanted to live in and, if so, this meant that we had to think very carefully about how we chose to use our creativity.
The nature of education is rapidly changing across the world. New curricula and new approaches to teaching and learning; the changing social conditions which children and young people are growing up within; the technical and environmental challenges we all face: all these produce extraordinary pressures on the values, purposes and role of education on teachers and young people alike.
All Our Futures is Aspire's annual conference for international head teachers. The programme aims to introduce pedagogical practices which are being applied at various levels in international schools by providing participants with exclusive, intense immersive experiences in schools and to generate unique, high quality insights into teaching and learning.
We hope that you can join us to develop our mutual work, our shared conversations and our engaged presences which will lead us to constructing positive visions for our future generations of children and learners.

We are very pleased to announce the Call for Session Proposals for ACA's 2013 International Conference in New England!
To be considered as a potential presenter for the ACA 2013 International Conference, please submit your proposal with the following in mind.
To offer participants an opportunity to learn, observe, and engage in the art, craft, practice, and experience of creativity. Presenters and participants will learn from each other through interaction that has a focus on addressing the real challenges and opportunities facing our business, nonprofit, governmental, educational, and artistic/cultural sectors.
So you’re creative. Now what? How do you plan to pay the rent? This year's theme "Creativity for Sale" invites us to explore the role of convergence in creativity, the best practices and effective models of the creative process that have been developed over the years, and welcomes the opportunity to learn from each other. At ACA 2013 we will explore how creative people and their ideas can be branded more effectively, sharing insights on how creatives and the products of their efforts can be promoted to result in economic and other benefits. We are inviting proposals for sessions addressing what works, what doesn’t, and what questions remain to be answered when living a creative life.
Proposals should address the role of creativity in one or more of the following areas:
Sessions are expected to appeal to creative professionals and present new information to conference attendees. Participants should be able to apply the knowledge acquired in the session to their work in areas such as business development, education, marketing, science, new product development, training, academia, and the arts. Sessions may demonstrate existing processes in new circumstances or may introduce original research in the field of creativity.
Seeking presentations reflecting conference theme and applicability to “Classic” and new models for creativity and problem solving (Osborn-Parnes, Synectics, TRIZ, lateral thinking, whole brain, Kepner Tregoe, Value Engineering, etc.) or the repertoire of practical strategies and techniques for creative problem solving and its application to real-world situations.
ACA expects presenters to benefit from sharing their expertise with a wide audience. To ensure that the conference is affordable for both presenters and attendees, ACA offers a lowest-possible price for all on a per-day basis: $125 for one-day, $225 for two days. This includes entrance to all general and concurrent sessions, conference materials, breakfasts, lunches, and breaks with great snacks. Friday evening’s lobster and wine reception, a great social and networking event, is included with a Friday one-day and the full two-day conference registrations.
