Rediscovering Authentic Creativity

Peter Chan  |  Visual Development Artist, PChan LTD


Location: Room 2006, West Hall

Format: Session
Track: Visual Arts
Vault Recording: Video


How do we come up with original ideas? How do we get around our creative blocks? When our brains are tired, busy and full of clutter, how do we develop new concepts and tap into our own creativity? If you're curious, this presentation is for you. Our fears inhibit our imaginative selves. Our fear of failure, fear of being laughed at, fear of not being clever or good enough, fear of not being successful, and (my biggest hang up) the fear of being found out as a fraud. By sharing my struggles, work, life experiences, and creative process, we will explore what I call "authentic creativity."

Takeaway

When you are vulnerable, you show your true self. You get to trust and connect with people and your art. You learn to listen to your intuition and passions (even if it's scary). Allowing ourselves to be truly seen is a powerful source of innovation, creativity and transformation.

Intended Audience

This talk is for everyone who is passionate about art, whatever that may be.
