Unlock Your Creative Confidence

  • General Assembly

Get your creative juices flowing with hands-on, minds-on activities. In this workshop you'll explore the art of improvisation, play with LEGO and build your very own puppet from trash with Trash Puppets.

We don’t need to divide the world into the ‘creatives’ and the ‘non-creatives.’ We are all naturally creative and we should let our ideas fly. Unfortunately, what often holds us back is our fear of judgment and failure as we get older.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up." - Picasso

Embedded in creativity is uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure - the ingredients of vulnerability. Getting comfortable with the discomfort of vulnerability is the key to living a creative life.

During the session we'll break down why we fear creativity, and how in doing so impedes our path to bringing forth the treasures that are hidden inside of us.

The Secret Sauce Behind Creativity

Feel like you've lost your creative mojo? This short and sharp workshop is designed to help you get it back, but not without embracing the discomfort that comes along with creativity.

Embedded in the creative process is uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure - the ingredients of vulnerability.

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, innovation and change. To create is to make something that has never existed before. There’s nothing more vulnerable than that.” 
- Dr Brene Brown

This session will explore how to face our fears and take steps towards building creative resilience.
