The Creative Life: a conversation about getting started, following through, and overcoming resistance
Fri 4 PM | Convo Hall 7
Sat 5 PM | Convo Hall 7
Emily M. Francis
How do we live a creative life every day? How can we understand our call as creators as a spiritual calling? Join in this conversation about dreams, creativity, the hard work it takes to get there, and the obstacles we encounter on the way. We will share and gather resources, talk about what has worked and what has not as we pursue our creative dreams. A great place for people just getting started on their creative journey as well as for those who have been on this path for some time. This is an opportunity to learn from one another, to re-ignite our calling, and to re-energize our work.
