Hosting a Daring Creativity Workshop

Daring Creativity Workshops have been used for:

  • Retreats
  • Group exploration of a topic or theme;
  • Increasing self-awareness, mindfulness and empathy;
  • Increasing authenticity in groups, ministries, or organizations;
  • Vision casting for businesses and organizations; and
  • Personal discovery and spiritual growth.

Workshops can be structured as half-day, full-day, or multi-day events.  Let’s dare to get creative and design a workshop that fits your needs!

  • Background on the Daring Creativity method (history, purpose & possible outcomes)
  • “Show & Tell” about some sample collages and what they revealed to the artist
  • Demonstration of collage-making process and tutorial on how to use the tools
  • Time for participants to create collages on 5×7” illustration board using magazine images and glue sticks
  • Journaling exercise where participants are invited to “interview” one or more of their collages and  write a statement that defines the message of their collage(s)
  • Small group discussion
  • Large group ritual
