I’m trialling a new program, You Time, from mid-June to mid-July 2020.
There are many barriers to creating new works or completing works in progress. There is that familiar sense of aloneness: a sense that I, the artist/creator, am the only person who believes in my vision or is invested in how my project turns out. Then there is that struggle many of us (artists and non-artists alike) have around valuing our own ideas and creativity: we’re sometimes insecure about putting ourselves out there. Some of us also live with mental health issues, or other obstacles that can hinder motivation or otherwise threaten our creative output.
You Time is a response to these very real struggles.
You Time is my commitment to being invested in your projects with you, and to journeying with you in your creative progress.
I’ve been involved with the creative process in many forms over the last 13 years – reading, writing, rehearsing, directing, producing, tech, reviewing, music composition and performance, acting, assessing funding applications, mentoring and training writers and performers, and so much more. I have created my own collection of works (live shows, music, writings, and more) and have had deeply involved access to a wealth of works created by other artists at various stages of their careers, from amateurs to independent professionals to international superstars.
Allow me to bring some of my incredible experience to your creative journey.
You Time is a call to self-love and self-care, to believe in your creative vision and receive enthusiastic support and engagement from an unbiased outsider. You Time is an invitation to take your creativity seriously, to give your ideas space to develop and find form and expression. You Time is an opportunity to stretch your creative limits, to explore what’s inside you and to share your gifts with another person, and eventually (if this is your goal), with the world.
For details on the trial run of this program from mid-June to mid-July 2020, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll take it from there 🙂
