Following the success of David Gauntlett’s popular Keys to Creativity series, Making It Happen is a series of weekly online conversations where we focus on how to be more creative, make connections, and get things done. Each one-hour session includes some talk, some workshop exercises and some discussion. The ideas are relevant to all kinds of creative work, whether art, fashion, music, video games, poetry or whatever you do. And because it’s an online workshop with all kinds of interesting people, we learn from each other.

You will learn:
  • 10 July 2020 – Getting things done 
  • 17 July 2020 – Doing it with less
  • 24 July 2020 – Building your networks
  • 14 Aug 2020 – Making inspirations
  • 21 Aug 2020 – Try anything
  • 28 Aug 2020 – Sharing the learning
