What is it?
The Next Chapter for Creatives is a space to think and plan for what’s next.
This one-day personal and professional programme is a creative collaboration between Coach and Facilitator, Bev Morton and Artist Jean McEwan. Working in a supportive and challenging environment, the programme provides an immersive and focused space working alongside a diverse group of creative professionals and peers. Using creative methods throughout, the programme seeks to challenge the conventional paradigm of what it means to be creative and the way in which we live and work.
The programme asks some important questions:
• Where is the business now?
• Where has it been?
• Where is it going and why? And what’s important in the next chapter?
• How are is it going to get there?
