Time & Dates

Tuesdays, 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd Feb, 4-5:30 pm

 

Be impactful in the situations that matter to you

What exactly does activism mean to you? Is it a state of being or a state of doing? Is it an important path of influence? Or is it a disruption you’d rather do without? Whether you are clear on your views or baffled by what is going on in the world: your actions matter.

Unlock the creative power within conflict

Creative Activism will acquaint you with your inner pioneer and free the creative energy often bound by intellect, ideas, and enemies. The space between what you fight for, and against, is an open playground. Working in cohorts, we will explore our individual and collective creativity in response to the challenges we meet along the way.

Bring more of your talents to the world

Through the use of gentle, artistic, activities lies the opportunity to connect more deeply with your inner purpose, discover unknown allies, and find powerful ways of showing up in your day to day life, or for your cause, mission or quest.

You will be guided through a spacious, four-session journey. We will use visualisation, art, story and embodied practice to open the way to personal insight and strength.

The workshop is inspired and informed by the late Dr Chris Seeley’s ‘Artful Organisation’, by Julia Cameron’s ‘The Artist’s Way’, by Process Oriented Psychology practices and the facilitators own experience of art, sustainability and deep ecology.

These workshops are suitable for anyone wishing to explore the relationship between themselves and the outside world. We take care to cater for all learning styles with our choice of exercises within a supportive peer environment.

An invitation to activists, would-be activists and anti-activists alike. No artistic or creative background is required, just an inquisitive mind and open heart.
