The Creative Thinking Project

All Ages

Professor Peter O’Connor is the director of the Centre for Applied Research in Creative Thinking at the University of Auckland. He has created and researched theater in earthquake zones, prisons, schools, and psychiatric hospitals, after terror attacks, and with the homeless for nearly forty years. Over the course of this four-day residency in partnership with downtown Los Angeles organizations working to aid and abet homelessness—among them Urban Voices, the Los Angeles Poverty Department, My Friend’s Place, and Skid Row Housing Trust—the workshop by O’Connor will pose questions about the visible and invisible strands of those who live on the streets of Los Angeles.
