Faculty: Creativity and The Architecture of Risk
Date: 18/05/2019 | Location: Blick Shared Studios, 46 Hill Street, BT12LB
A day long workshop with Adam Turkington who will examine how risk works and how we can manage it in such a way to allow you to take confident steps into more ‘risky’ creative career choices. Adam will share skills on how to deal with ‘no’ people that you may encounter on your creative journey and look to empower you with insight, skills & confidence to encourage people to try something new, whether that is you, your audience or clients.
This dynamic & thought provoking workshop will offer the chance to connect with each other, hear about Adam’s journey, discuss your own experience, work together and network. It will be an exciting opportunity to reflect on your creative path & using Adam’s insight to help plot where you hope to go.
