The Time is Now // 4 Week Course

Blick Studios

£ 100,00

We are excited to announce our first ‘The Time is Now’ 4 week course in collaboration with Womenfolk, Blick Studios & Creating A Space. OVERVIEW This course will help you to create space in your life to work out what you want to do. To take the time to establish your values, vision and goals. To work out what is holding you back and help you find the confidence to make small tangible steps to achieve your creative dreams and ambitions no matter how big. In Northern Ireland, there is a mentality that seemingly is ingrained in our culture of making ourselves small. Especially for women in the creative industries. There aren’t many spaces made for us to flourish and grow in a way that fits our needs. Enterprise support is generally based around high growth businesses rather than value led businesses that fit our personal goals and ambitions. Perhaps you want to run a lifestyle business and be able to work anywhere in the world, maybe you need to balance business with family life, maybe you only need a part-time income, perhaps you want to pursue your passion or maybe you want to grow a sustainable value-led business that creates good quality employment opportunities within your local town or city. We are on a life-long mission to change that here in Northern Ireland where we want to break down barriers for women and creatively find solutions to make a difference within ourselves. This course will provide a ‘space’ for women that are yearning to create deeper connections with themselves, to come together in a supportive environment and take the time to understand what they really want to do and the first steps to take to make this happen. WHO IS THIS FOR? This course is for creative women that want to take their dreams/ideas/concepts/current business/ideas to the next level. It is a creative approach to taking control and accountability for your life and going for what you want to do. This course is about sharing experiences, hearing other people’s stories and collectively working to help each other to grow and build in a supportive and nurturing environment. WHY ARE WE OFFERING THIS COURSE? We are providing this course because we feel that it is important to create space in your life to sit down and plan out what you want to do. To take the time to evaluate what is holding you back from manifesting the dreams & ambitions that you have always wanted. A welcoming space and supportive environment Refreshments Workshop tools including: – Post It Notes, Paper, Pens & Notebooks, an organizational guide of resources and Womenfolk Manifestation Worksheets WEEK 1 : VALUES & AMBITION Week 1 will be an introduction to the group, the 4 week course and highlighting our personal stories. We will be asking everyone what they hope to get out of the course, and tailor the 4 weeks to their desired outcomes. We will be introducing ourselves, Esther Mogada from Creating A Space & Christine James from Blick Studios who will be leading the course. We will share our stories and journeys within the creative industries. Discuss why we wanted to create this course, why we think it’s important and what our intentions are going forward. We will ask the group to share their stories, why they wanted to do the course and what they hope to get out of it. Probably the most important part of this course as your personal values will dictate how you choose to live your life and your creative and business plans and ambitions. We will do this by asking questions like “What is your dream lifestyle? “, “What do you enjoy?”, “What are you good at?”, “What is your definition of success?”, “What is important to you in life?” “what are your values?” and “what is your overall dream?” to get you to really think about your own personal values and ambitions. WEEK 2 : VISION – DEFINING AMBITIONS & INTENTIONS WEEK 3 : CLAIMING YOUR STORY WEEK 4 : DREAM BIG & START Book your tickets at : https://www.blickstudios.org/events/the-time-is-now-4-week-course/
