Where Genius Grows

This show wrestles with big questions from a dizzying array of perspectives. The resulting picture shows us where genius grows in plain sight. * Main themes include: * "Our Changing World" — Social and technological innovation are rewriting the map of our lives faster than we can keep up. People leading the change help us make sense of this rapid evolution. * "United We Stand" — It's easy to take for granted the fabric that holds society together. People who have insight into the forces that create unity, ranging from the interpersonal to the international, help us to see our own role in weaving this fabric. * "Finding Your Voice" — How we express ourselves fundamentally shapes the way we live our lives. By learning from the multitude of ways that people use their voices, we can find the means to more fully reveal who we are. * "Mastering Your Craft" — We stand in awe of skills that craftspeople have elevated to the level of art. For those engaged in this process, mastery may seem forever out of reach. What can we learn from them?

Ammoun Dissi and Justin Hefter discovered that people on opposite sides of the same conflict, in regional conflicts around the world, are more likely to be playing the same computer games than gamers in other parts of the world. Recognizing an opportunity to exploit this common ground their company Bandura Games develops cooperative gaming platforms that enable gamers who might otherwise view each other as enemies to come together as friends.
