BLICK SUMMER WORKSHOPS
Date: Sat 5th, 12th & 19th August | Northern Ireland
3 x ½ day workshops for creatives in Belfast to help you to develop, define and put your creative story into words
Workshop 1 – Developing and Defining Your Creative Story
What is the story behind your creative practice or idea? What do you do and more importantly why do you do it? What are your values? What makes you different?
This workshop is all about helping you to understand and define your creative story. It will help you to define what is truly important to you, what makes you different and why that is important to your audience. It will get you thinking about who your audience is and the best methods of sharing your story with them.
An action-led workshop designed to help you to bring your creative idea to life with the support of other like-minded creatives. This workshop will involve practical exercises and group work to help you to leave the session with a practical tangible output you can implement in your creative practice or idea.
Workshops 2 & 3 – Putting Your Creative Story into Words
Over two sessions, you will have the opportunity to develop a unique story that reflects the values of your creative practice or idea. In the first session, you will cover ways to write a compelling and engaging story. You will use prompts to begin crafting the story of your creative practice or idea. In the second session, you will refine this story into something that you can use to communicate your creative practice or idea purpose and values.
