Next Higher Ground Workshop dates TBA
"It was good to just engage in this creative process for a couple of days. It was great!"Lucia Harkin
Higher Ground is an option for transformation it is a unique opportunity for us to find new ways to continue to create. It creates a space and time for Independent artists to help each other and think outside the square for a few days to seek to find ways to move forward as artists and create new cross art form work.
We will endeavor to develop cross-art form new works and find new ways of developing as an artist combining emerging artists with experienced artists chosen for their longevity in the arts as well as qualified transformational life coach Jenny Pullen.
"I had an awesome time with you. It was a truly liberating experience for me to be there. Thank-you so much. I won't be forgetting that in a hurry! It was so stimulating and an all round experience, in which I had time to create, be inspired and focus. It was the best opportunity for me to explore myself, relax and HAVE FUN! I would recommend it to anyone! The process has started, that's the main thing!" Ursula Neelu Good. (Higher Ground 2008)
Workshop at "Imagine"Calling all artists, dancers and writers! Sometimes life gets so busy it can seem impossible to dedicate time to your true calling - whether it be painting, dancing, writing or any other creative pursuit. (Artists who may feel stuck in a stage of developing their practice).
Imagine spending a weekend away in breath-taking countryside with other like-minded creative artists!
The Higher Ground workshop is a unique opportunity to receive support and encouragement to follow your dreams. Life coach Jenny Pullan will help you reassess your goals and priorities to enable you to realise your full potential. Workshop co-ordinator Karen Kerkhoven will guide you through an exploration of cross-art form development to help you break new ground and broaden the scope of your ideas.
"The workshop gives you time to focus on your creative work and find a vision of how you would like it to develop in the future" Karen said.
The Higher Ground workshops are located at Coomba, three hours north of Sydney, in the Great Lakes district near Foster.
