WATCH: Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry celebrates black creativity with Taylor Staten and Tonika Johnson

Targeting students in Chicago’s underserved neighbourhoods, photojournalist Tonika Johnson and architect Taylor State have discussed creativity and collaboration as part of MSI’s Black Creativity programme






Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) has brought together two of its Black Creativity 2021 Innovators to discuss their thoughts on creativity and collaboration.

In a new video released by MSI, photojournalist Tonika Johnson and architect Taylor State discuss how collaboration benefits their creativity and what it actually means to be creative.

“I’m always excited because I always know that someone has a completely different perspective,” said State, discussing collaboration. “I always say that perspective is your superpower. The way you see the world is your gift and that’s how you inform change.”

Discussing what it means to be creative, Johnson says that to truly innovate, you have to understand the rules so you can break them.

“All of that helps you think about a new way of looking at something,” she said. “In order to be innovative, you have to challenge what exists.”

The video is part of MSI’s Black Creativity programme, which celebrates African-American achievement in science, technology, engineering, art and medicine. The scheme, says MSI, was created to offer a wide range of targeted, culturally relevant STEM education programming supported by the Museum’s Welcome to Science Initiative.

The programme reaches more than 10,000 students, their teachers, and their families in underserved Chicago neighborhoods each year.
