"The world is changing faster than ever in our history. We need to evolve a new appreciation of the importance of nurturing human talent along with an understanding of how talent expresses itself differently in every individual. We need to create an environment - in our schools, communities, workplaces and in our public offices - where every person is inspired to grow creatively."

Sir Ken Robinson, All Our Futures: Creativity, Culture & Education
