Giving Something Back
We are getting so many questions for advice about all aspects of running an artistic / creative organisation, project or business that we have decided to give this area of our work a separate name and build it up as a professional service. Having run a very busy, multidisciplinary and intercultural arts venue in Dublin for over 5 years and having worked in the sector for well over 25 years we are more than happy to share this expertise with our Creative Friends!
Defining Your Why
Would you like to make your passion your profession? Have you been trying to make a living from your art? Have you been trying to get an audience for your art / work? Struggling? This will give you a basic insight into how to change this, the steps you can take and what results you are looking for. It will also ask you the question, WHY am I doing this? For whom, what and why? If you can Define your why, your purpose and your impact; construct your stories; be honest, authentic and one with yourself then you are in a position to kickstart your career in the arts.
Defining the You in your work
We look at the You in your work. We look at how a knowledge of Somatic and Embodied Leadership skills can help you in your artistic practice. Exploring the idea of CIOACC – Centred, Integrity, Openness, Action, Collaboration and Commitment. We will also look at motivation and what drives you. We will also look at what motivates others to engage with your work – be they audiences, stakeholders, funders or customers and how you need to engage on a personal level with them and to look at the World from their perspective.
