What we need

  • Help spreading the word



Time slots are divided into 30-minute blocks. Talks will focus on creativity, creative process and creative projects and will be geared to helping the audience discover new ideas and approaches to their own creative pursuits.

We've received confirmation that none of our speakers will be using a projector for their talk!

  1. Tom Hofstatter: focusing creativity by imposing boundaries (and removing distraction)
  2. Louise Legault-Hatem: "using your inner creative genius in impromptu situations - answering difficult questions or providing feedback off-the-cuff" 
  3. Alison Gresik: four things you need to write a book -- or finish any big project -- next year 
  4. Sue Murphy: the role of hiatus in the creative process
