This I Believe: Creativity
By Frederic Reamer
Providence, RI – One of the joys of spending time with children is the opportunity to witness their remarkable and spontaneous creativity - the kind of creativity that, sadly, seems to drift away from so many of us as we age. Jenny Peek lives in the world of children's creativity and shares her beliefs about what this should mean for all of us.
Peek has been working in theater and the performing arts since 1986. After living in New York City for 16 years, she moved to Providence, and, in January 2004, founded THE MANTON AVENUE PROJECT, which is designed to enhance the self esteem and unleash the creative voices of inner-city children by uniting them with professional artists to create original theater.
