Seven fun 2-hour workshops led by Michelle that help get you out of your comfort zone and get out there to explore your edges, and get on with the creative work that really matters to you.
Going on an adventure with a group is often lively! Armed with our ‘Passports’, Tickets and Postcards to send from the Artists Adventures card deck, we set out for different 'destinations' each week. The journey is often fun and full of stories as we journey through these themed weeks together.
Everyone is doing different creative work - we have singers, writers, artists, photographers, gardeners, makers, musicians and entrepreneurs starting new businesses - and everyone is encouraged to take a creative risk every week.
This makes it more fun, challenging and spontaneous - you never quite know how it will pan out during the week because other people are in the mix. As a group, we can support and keep each other accountable, but we’re also there to provoke and prod (inspiration and a push!).
It's not compulsory to share your stories through the journey, but it's amazing when people do - I'm always totally inspired by how awesome people are! It only goes to confirm my belief that we are all creative by nature, and when you make space and time to nurture this, the results are truly incredible.

Finally, you reflect and assimilate all you've experienced during the program, engaging your own wisdom.
