Creative Consultation from Concept to Completion
Welcome to the consultation workshop by Lisa Anita Wegner designed to help you get your project out of your mind and out into the world. Bring your ideas and projects in any state of development, and get inspired as you interact with other artists in this unique workshop featuring a combination of fuel for the imagination and practical planning.
Discover the core of why you want to do a creative project and learn to use what really drives you. Lisa will guide you through concept pitches, planning, production, creation, and exhibition of the work, and share what she has learned about traditional sources of funding, crowd funding, resource sharing and alternative methods of getting things done that balance feasibility with maintaining the integrity of the project.
Each week will feature facilitated group discussion on people’s projects, to encourage your own creativity as well as artistic cross-pollination and idea-sharing. The workshop will be a safe place in which the excitement and joy of bringing a project to life is nurtured, and where you will find the support you need to stay on track. The sessions will also focus on a different facet of a professional art practice each week to help you clarify your vision of how you see your own practice, and develop the strategic & practical tools to achieve your goals. There will also be opportunities to sign up to have a session concentrate solely on your project.
A special aspect of the workshop will be a frank look at the intersection of creativity and physical/mental health issues. Using examples from her own practice, with projects of different sizes and budgets created at varying levels of health, Lisa will help you find a therapeutic way to keep creating at all times.
