Walking the creative path

Whether you write, paint, sing, take photographs, are someone who dreams of creating a beautiful garden or planning a new adventure, the creative path is one that presents particular challenges as well as joys.

Working on a creative project often confronts us with our inner critic. How do you maintain enthusiasm and perservere creatively when part of you casts doubt on your abilities?  External criticism and rejection can also stop us in our tracks.  How do you support yourself emotionally and practically in a culture in which creativity is not always valued unless accompanied by fame and fortune, rewards which, if achieved, then bring their own complications?

This group will provide a regular forum for exploring creativity and finding support in being creative.  Group work provides an opportunity for sharing experience with others, overcoming isolation and getting useful, constructive feedback.

The group leader is Sophie Waterhouse.

The group runs fortnightly at Spectrum on Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 9.30pm.
