As we all know, the Covid-19 crisis means it’s hard or impossible for creators to carry on as normal. But we can use this time to think, reflect and have conversations – well, online conversations. Maybe even make a few new plans.
So with Artscape Launchpad, I’m offering ‘Keys to Creativity’. These are weekly online conversations, on Zoom, where we focus on how to boost your creativity and your creative connections, every Wednesday at 11am. (That’s 11am Toronto time (EDT), which is 4pm for viewers in the UK, 5pm in Germany and Sweden, or … if you’re elsewhere, I’m sure you can work it out).
Each one-hour session includes some talk, some workshop exercises and some discussion. The ideas are relevant to all kinds of creative work, whether art, engineering, music, video-games, poetry or whatever you do. And because it’s an online workshop with all kinds of interesting people, we can learn from each other.
