Description

Envisioning a Sustainable Creative Practice

with poet and educator Jacob Sam-La Rose



"Go hard or go home," is a familiar mantra. All too often our aptitude for success is measured by how far we are willing to push beyond our limits and comfort zones in search of our best work - or better selves. But in a world where burnout is media news, and work/life balance is often described as a myth, where do we draw the line?

This masterclass will help you challenge the narratives that are often placed upon independent creatives, including the notion to be a "do-it-all" professional.

Jacob will help you consider the different ways of doing the work you’re here for, and explore different models for getting that work done, examining what might work best for the individual, rather than judging oneself according to a "one size fits all" assessment of what a successful business/practice/enterprise might look like.

Through a mix of facilitated discussion and practical exercises, you will be supported to establish principles to avoid overcommitting yourself, define"Don't Do" lists, as well as expectations, to help you envision a creative practice that serves you as much as it serves your goals.


Who is this masterclass for?

This masterclass is primarily for creative professionals at the beginning or in the first year of their careers, but it is open to anyone who believes they'll gain practical value from engaging with the considerations presented.
