What Is Creative Maladjustment

What is Creative Maladjustment?

It’s about not allowing ourselves to become content with the problems we see in the world around us. It’s about not giving in to social pressure to align the way we think and behave with the status quo.  Instead, being creatively maladjusted means finding new solutions to challenges, allowing ourselves to be different, and embracing the creative contributions of our friends and neighbors. The creatively maladjusted among us are critical thinkers, architects of alternatives, and believers in humanity.

Can you imagine a better description of what we do at The Independence Center?

This week, we plan to celebrate all the ways that we are different by highlighting how wonderful our maladjustments really are! Please be sure to watch our Facebook page and our Twitter feed!
