The Importance of Creativity and Design


Why is creativity important? How are students today creating change in their communities? And how can we all learn to become more creative? 

This year marks the third annual Adobe Youth Voices Awards — an online competition that invites students to submit projects that share their vision to create change in the world. In celebration of the AYV Awards, we’re hosting a Google Hangout on Thursday, May 22 at 10 am PT. Join our panel of AYV Awards judges as they discuss importance of creativity and design and how they’re trying to create change in their own communities.

• Matt Rozen, Corporate Social Media Group Manager, Adobe (Moderator)
• Patrick Coyne, Editor, Communication Arts Magazine
• Ian Padgham, Video Producer, Origiful
• Jeff Larson, Artist and Adobe Youth Voices Lead Ed
