Conference organizers hoping to spark campus creativity

Human advancement has been led by brilliant innovations, says WinShi Wong. One of the organizers of a TEDx conference, “The Creative Spark,” planned for the UWindsor campus on November 8, she hopes the event will inspire delegates.

A creative spark need not change society or humanity as a whole,” says Wong. “It could simply change the course of one persons’ life. We hope to highlight what the next creative spark could be.”

The conference is independent but based on the TED Talks which explore Technology, Entertainment and Design. The program features 10 speakers, including UWindsor faculty members Simon Du Toit, Siyaram Pandey and Edwin Tam, as well as Christine Quaglia, a disability advisor in the Student Success Centre.

The event has a limited capacity, so organizers are inviting applications from individuals interested in attending. The deadline to apply is Friday, October 24. Find details on the conference website,
