A few months ago, we curated a second round of Creative Conversations as a celebratory gathering for our book, In Case You Come Back. News travelled to us that it was sold out in less than 3 months, which is incredibly amazing! In lieu with that, we wanted to thank the supportive and encouraging souls who have been with us since the beginning.
Doing a little twist from our previous session, we wanted the scene to be purely heartwarming, laid-back and just a night of gathering with like-minded creatives and creative lovers who share the passion of poetry and art.
Held in the cozy space of Karen’s Kitchen, we talked about Finding A Home For Your Creativity, Bringing Joy Back To Your Work, Finding Your Spark and Sharing Your Process To Others.
As the night went on, there was a buzz of commonality, understanding and connection amongst the circle as we feasted on pizzas and pastas. I found that talking about these things and finding similarities with others open us up to learning more about ourselves and those around us.
This time around, I would be able to share in depth the things we conversed about. From the notes I took from our second session of Creative Conversations, here are some of our insights and thoughts on the topic of creativity:
FINDING A HOME FOR YOUR CREATIVITY
Wether it be in the space of your notebook or in the crevice of the online world, finding a home for your creativity keeps a grounding place for us to come back and see our progress.
BRINGING JOY BACK TO YOUR CREATIVE WORK
In the fine line we walk between pursuing our creative craft into a career and staying true to our passion, we may find ourselves teetering on the edge where all the joy is replaced by frustrations that comes from other people’s expectations and dealing with them can take a huge amount of willpower and determination so we could get back on track and find happiness in our work once again.
Hopefully you were able to gather a thing or two from the notes above. It’s aways a pleasure to be around a circle of creatives and just talk about matters of the heart. I’ll be signing off from this point, but I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions on anything we mentioned under the cut. Let me know and comment below what you think!
