Think Creatively: Disney Citizenship believes in possibility powered by creativity. By inspiring creativity in young people today, we hope to ignite the spark of innovation that will lead us all to a brighter tomorrow. Creativity is the heart and soul of Disney. We believe that if you can dream it, you can do it. Walt Disney once said ‘it’s kind of fun to do the impossible.’ We couldn’t agree more. Our goal is to motivate generations of young people to harness the power of creativity to help improve their communities. The world’s next great artists, innovators, athletes, engineers, communicators, architects, zoologists and dreamers are out there. We’re thrilled to play a role in providing the tools they need to thrive and create the future they imagine. Every day, we work with organizations all over the world to bring the art of imagination, storytelling and play to kids and families through after school creativity grants, book donations and play spaces that help foster out-of-the-box thinking.
