What is California Creativity/Destination Imagination?
California Creativity is the California chapter of the Destination Imagination organization. Destination ImagiNation, Inc. seeks to be the world’s foremost non-profit membership organization dedicated to promoting three critical life skills among learners at all levels: Creativity, Teamwork, and Problem-Solving. These three life skills form the core of our organization’s value system.
A: Its Your Move Create a game played on a giant game board with a large team-driven vehicle for a game piece.
B: On Holiday You and your teammates will create comic fireworks in a humorous performance about your adventures in a foreign nation.
C: Dual DI-lemma Your Dual DI-lemma is to design, build and test two Structures using contrasting materials and contrasting construction methods, and to present a performance illustrating two contrasting Segments.
D: StranDId Isolated in a stranded situation and unable to use electric power of any kind, the characters must use a team-invented mechanical device (and their own "energized" ingenuity!) to cope with their situation. By skillfully adapting everyday items to use in new ways, and with the help of a humorous character, the team will bring its predicament to a happy conclusion.
E: Art of Improv Your challenge is to create a connection of unrelated elements by integrating a team created image(s) from Famous Artwork, information gathered from an Exploration, a Situation, and a Surprise Character by using an Improvisational technique.
