The Art of Fear
November 3 @ 9:15 am - November 4 @ 5:00 pm
This creative and experimental two day workshop takes as its starting point the observation that art involves uncertainty and that apprehensiveness is inevitable at times. Artists can encounter fear at all stages of the artistic process and fear may also be brought on by external life factors, failed funding bids or competitions. Participants will be introduced to techniques of social dreaming and new ways of thinking about their relationship with life, creativity and fear. They will learn more about their fears and what they mean and how to turn fear and uncertainty into creative and productive energy with which to realise creative ambitions.
Non-residential 9.15am – 5pm Sat 3rd + Sun 4th November. Lunch and snacks are provided on both days.
Course Leader: James Barrett, is a Warwickshire based psychotherapist and co-founder of the West Midlands Training in Jungian Psychotherapy. He believes creativity and curiosity connect individuals to deep learning and growth. In his work with social dreaming, he facilitates transformative thinking and feeling concerning attitudes to our environment.
