EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
Anyone can be taught creative survival skills to help their projects thrive.
Learn and use these skills to map out your goals for the new year.
It is common knowledge that growth needs to be paired with a plan to achieve best results. It is less common to be reminded that periods of growth benefit from, and even require, periods of rest and reflection. It’s the time of year to pause and evaluate what ground you have covered and where you would like to go next.
This two-part workshop offers a chance to experiment and build a set of observational tools. Most importantly, it is a chance to remember how to play. Using techniques unique to drawing and creative writing, you will gain insight and cultivate awareness in a fun way, helping you identify habits, assumptions and blockages. The outcome will be a set of personal guidelines and a map to the change you want to see in the coming year.
You don’t have to know how to write or draw to participate. Come ignite your curiosity and creativity, the most important tools in your tool-box.
