In this 2-hour session we discuss what we think should be included in The Creative History Manifesto. Participants will be asked to create a page for the manifesto. We are asking that a copy of your page is given to us so we can bring them all together for The Creative History Manifesto. This session will be lead and facilitated by Seleena Laverne Daye.
