Best of 2013: The Year in Creativity on GOOD

As creativity ambassador for GOOD, it was an especially exciting task to look back at what the year 2013 brought in terms of creativity from the GOOD community. Everyone from artists, activists, designers, architects, chefs, athletes, technologists, etc. contributed to the larger conversation of creativity in the year 2013.
