Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery

March 25, 2014  • Aspen Institute Arts Program

Author Sarah Lewis spoke with Aspen Institute Arts Program Director Damian Woetzel about her debut book: The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. The book is a layered, story-driven investigation of how innovation, discovery, and the creative process are all spurred on by advantages gleaned from the improbable, the unlikely, and failure.

The Washington Ideas Roundtable Series is made possible with the generous support of Michelle Smith and the Robert H. Smith Family Foundation.
