Creative Matters lecture

This event is co-sponsored by Hancher and the Creative Matters lecture series. The Creative Matters series is sponsored by the UI Office of the Vice President for Research in collaboration with the UI Arts Advancement Committee.

The Creative Matters lecture series, launched in Fall 2015, seeks to demonstrate that creativity and innovation are not only at the core of all research and discovery, but also central to our human experience. Our lineup of speakers includes artists, thinkers, builders, and doers who challenge conventional thinking about creativity, science, and artistic expression, and borrow from a range of influences and disciplines in their work.


Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Leslie Revaux at leslie-revaux@uiowa.edu in advance of the event.
