Locals encouraged to 'Get Creative'

LAKE GEORGE - The Creativity Coaching Association, an international organization dedicated to artists, entrepreneurs, creativity coaches and all who seek to enhance their creative abilities and expand their influence in the world, recently announced their second annual conference. "Creativity: Let it Be Life!" will make its second-ever home in Lake George Oct. 15-17.

The conference is open to everyone, especially those who are ready to embrace their creative nature and integrate their creative selves into every facet of their lives.

"Bring your curiosity, your questions and your creativity," said organizer Beverly Down, a Lake George-based creativity coach. "This will be a weekend of engaging speakers, workshops and activities that will allow participants to meet, grow and network with other creative types."

Down said the conference is not geared solely for the artistic or those currently working in a creative field.

"We're encouraging everyone from entrepreneurs to students and would-be creators to attend because creativity is built into your DNA ... whether you recognize it or not."

The CCA International Creativity Conference will feature internationally recognized presenters, interactive workshops, networking opportunities, luxurious accommodations, delicious meals, scenic fall boat cruise and live entertainment by local performer Rich Ortiz, including a performance of "Let it be Life," from his latest album.

Many people aren't aware of how creative they are because their definition of 'creative' tends to be pigeonholed into categories such as painter or singer, according to Down. She hopes the conference will open some eyes to all areas of creativity.

"Lots of people can have creative ideas brewing and they don't realize how easily they can be harnessed into income streams," said Down. "That's why this conference is such a great resource. There will be creativity coaches from around the world speaking and therefore, lots of potential for ideas to be sparked. Creative people tend to thrive in tough economic times because they have a natural tendency to seek out solutions creatively."

A special day pass is being offered for New York residents Saturday, Oct. 16. For a cost of $69, participants will get a choice of two workshops, a Tuscany luncheon buffet, afternoon refreshments, plus access to the art show and networking events.
