Creativity is an expansive, all-encompassing word whose definition is different for everyone. It means problem-solving, a unique perspective, expression, inspiration, translating ideas into tangible solutions, and nonlinear thinking. Creativity doesn’t have an allegiance to a particular medium: It’s art, culture, and design; ultimately it’s advancement. And creativity is not insular—it grows exponentially through community. So it was an especially exciting task to look back at what the year 2013 brought in terms of creativity from the GOOD community. Everyone from artists, activists, designers, architects, chefs, athletes, technologists, etc. contributed to the larger conversation of creativity in the year 2013. Below are some of the highlights from this year. And as we move forward into 2014, I’m excited to keep the conversation going with all of you.
