Nestled in the communities of Adam and North Adams, CTI strives to provide every person with the opportunity to find that creative voice inside themselves and make a difference in their lives. From entrepreneurship to creating a work of art, creative thinking drives the passion, spark, and innovation that defines what CTI is all about. We are committed to the idea that knowledge is power. The power to change lives through imagination and innovative thinking.
From acting classes to sponsored community events to lectures to performances and more, if it can improve your mind and creative/critical thinking skills we will explore that value in depth. Our programming is all about developing a sense of self and an appreciation of others. CTI will help you to think outside the box and face the challenges of life in creative ways.
CTI is there to serve the community and provide a place to explore one's inner muse and apply it to every day life. A lost opportunity is not something anyone wants, so let’s find ways of seizing those opportunities by recognizing creativity is a gateway to success. CTI is an opportunity to develop the creative tools necessary to attain that success.
CTI services the Berkshire area and the surrounding communities. This includes southwest Vermont, northwest Massachusetts, and the Capital District of New York. However, we are committed to anyone interested, regardless of their location. Creativity knows no borders, and neither do we. Aside from in-person programming, CTI provides online access to an ever-growing assortment of additional resources that anyone can access online.
“Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for businesspeople looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way.”
- Twyla Tharp
“The most creative people are motivated by the grandest of problems that are presented before them.”
- Neil deGrasse Tyson
