Regional Arts WA in partnership with Southern Forest Arts are excited to present a dynamic, career developing, two-day Creative Leadership Program, in Manjimup on Tuesday November 30th and Wednesday December 1st.
Designed for organisations, community leaders, local governments, teachers, artists and creative thinkers in the Southern Forests & Valleys region, this intensive leadership program will give you the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to build and strengthen your creative leadership skills.
Led by Dr Shona Erskine, a registered psychologist the program has been designed to help facilitate a culture of self-led leadership, collaborative leadership and community-led contribution, to specifically nurture the growth of leaders in regional WA.
The program is delivered in two modules over two days:
MODULE ONE – BEING CREATIVE (Tuesday)
Creative practice skills that everyone can use, no matter the situation. These micro-skills are easy to access and research has shown you will have a better than even chance at being creative when you need to be. No background in creative practice is needed to develop these skills.
MODULE TWO – CREATIVITY IN GROUPS (Wednesday)
Leadership processes for working with groups that need to think laterally and produce creative solutions. Creativity is most often a group endeavour! This module articulates the factors that guide groups toward creative solutions.
DATE Tuesday November 30th and Wednesday December 1st
TIME: 9am to 4pm
VENUE: Manjimup Wellness & Respite Centre, Edwards Street, Manjimup
Light refreshments are provided throughout the two days. Participants are to arrange their own lunch. Please contact Southern Forest Arts if you have any specific dietary needs.
