About Us

Urban planning, government, art, architecture, design. These impact the way our cities look, the way we feel, the way we live our lives. On this show we pull back the curtain and delve into the Private Side of Public Work. We ask the uncomfortable questions that need to be brought into the open to make our cities, companies, buildings, our governments, and ultimately our lives, run better.

Storm of Creativity with Kyna Leski of Rhode Island School of Design | Creative Process | Unlearning | Brainstorming | Art | Science | Problem Making | Gathering and Tracking

All of us must work our way through the empty page, the blank screen, writer’s block, confusion, chaos, and doubt. Although each instance of creativity is singular and specific, the creative process is universal. Artists, architects, poets, inventors, scientists, and others all navigate the same stages of the process in order to discover something that does not yet exist. Like a storm, the creative process slowly begins to gather and take form until it overtakes us—if we are willing to let it.
