What do we as artists need to stay motivated? Particularly during times of uncertainty? In this workshop, we’ll reflect on our relationship to creative endurance - what we need to stay inspired by and engaged with our work, and who it serves. We’ll talk about the importance of 5 variables - Routine, Novelty, Encouragement, Permission, and Service - and how these things help us thrive.
