Poets create poems. Painters paintings. AltspaceVR citizens? Entire worlds! I've created a world a week for three years. What is my creative process? What is yours? Join us in Venice, Italy, to apply an almost 100-year-old theory of creativity -- preparation, incubation, illumination, and verification -- to building 3D-worlds to share with friends, colleagues, co-workers, and students. Why Venice? First, Venice has been one of the most innovative, creative, and exploratory cities in the history of the world. Vivaldi, Michelangelo, Marco Polo, Da Vinci, and many more, came from, or passed through Venice. Even today, the Venice Biennale is the world's largest and most important art exhibition. (We will float above the Biennale). Second, the 2021 & 2022 Creativity & Cognition conference is being held there ('21 virtually). Our informal online meetup in social virtual reality is unaffiliated but we hope you'll attend C&C and share what you learn and experience.
