We think creativity is a vital component of tackling the world’s toughest problems and are thrilled to present Elizabeth Gilbert’s exclusive Creativity Workshop. This is one in a series of +Acumen master classes built with incredible instructors and experts to bring the most cutting edge ideas to the social sector.
This is an active journey of self-reflection, hosted by General Assembly Santa Monica and facilitated by LA+Acumen steering committee members Amanda Yiu and Rebecca Borough.
A creative life is any life governed more by curiosity than by fear. In this course Elizabeth Gilbert, the best-selling author of books including Eat Pray Love, Committed, The Signature of All Things and Big Magic will equip you with the practical tools and inspiration to jumpstart your own creative journey. Through video, articles and discussion, this +Acumen course will bring the key lessons from Gilbert's latest book, Big Magic, to life and offer coaching and insights that expand on her chapters. You’ll learn why perfectionism, originality, and passion are overrated and why we should instead strive to be authentic doers who follow our curiosity.
You should be prepared to roll up your sleeves and think hard about your own sources of curiosity and authenticity. You’ll leave the experience with a Creativity Notebook documenting your ideas for getting started and be connected to a community of other socially minded agents of creativity.
