WeWork in D.C. and InnovatorsBox have teamed up to produce a series of events on creativity, to be held at WeWork’s newest K Street location. The series is called #BeyondTheBox, and the idea is to convene “experts from industries viewed as “non-creative” to reveal how creativity can help spark insights and drive innovation.”

Just what are these “non-creative” industry verticals, you ask? Sessions will be held on government, “creative spaces,” legal affairs, food and new media and education. Each event aims to bring a few people working in different facets of that industry together to, presumably, talk about how creativity helps them do their jobs.
Sound like an intriguing way to spend an evening on K Street? You’ve just missed the kick-off event (on government) but “creative spaces” is up next on July 21.
