The search for “aha” moments
by Matt Goldman

“By reshaping our environments we can change the world.”

Matt Goldman is co-founder of Blue Man Group, an off-Broadway production that became a sensation known for its humor, blue body paint and wild stunts, and founder of Blue School, a school that balances academic mastery, creative thinking, and self and social intelligence. In this talk he argues that certain conditions can create “aha moments” — moments of surprise, learning and exuberance — frequent and intentional rather than random and occasional. “We need to cultivate safe and conducive conditions for new and innovative ideas to evolve and thrive,” Goldman says.
