AWESOME! Capoeira will make a come back in Pittsburgh, and I am going to make it happen with the help of Nego Gato Afro Brazilian Music and Dance! Really EXCITED about the future and become a teaching artist once again! ‪#Axe ‪#‎CapoeiristaForever‬ ‪#‎MotherAfrica‬

"Capoeira is best known in Brazil. Slaves from Africa brought the dance-like martial art there centuries ago. Now it's making its way back to Africa. Capoeira is being taught to former child soldiers as a way to integrate them back into society."

They're trying to rebuild their lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo — and one way to start is by learning capoeira, a Brazilian martial art.

How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure. "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they're the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."
