Creativity Conversations


For over 10 years, renowned thinkers and creators have met on Emory’s campus to discuss their philosophies and crafts through an endowed speaker series called the Rosemary Magee Creativity Conversations. Some notable past participants include Margaret Atwood, Alice Walker, and President Jimmy Carter. Originally, these live conversations were filmed and added to the Emory University Creativity Conversation youtube playlist. On this podcast, we will provide edited down versions of the Creativity Conversations introduced by current, artistically accomplished Emory University students.
