SARASOTA, Fla. (March 04, 2019) – Get inspired. Learn creative problem-solving. Or, perhaps, personal enrichment and happiness is more what you crave.

USF Sarasota-Manatee is hosting a variety of enrichment- and creativity-themed workshops with the return this month of the Florida Creativity Conference.

The much-anticipated annual symposium features professionals from the worlds of business, nonprofits, education, the arts, and health and wellness who study creativity and how it can transform lives, both personally and professionally.
