2 Minute Interview
How does your workshop with NOW Live Events relate to being in the moment?
We will be focussing on an arts activity drawing inspiration from our daily lives. Where we are right NOW in our lives and how that relates to where we have come from. Has the past influenced the present? And can the present influence the future?
What are you most looking forward to doing within your NOW Live Events slot?
I am looking forward to hearing from the group and looking for inspiring stories about how peoples lives have evolved and changed based on decisions they’ve made. Plus of course seeing how those stories are visualised in the workshop!!
Any tips on how the audience can best benefit from your workshop with NOW Live Events?
Be open and honest about your stories and focus your attention on what you want your life to be like. Where do you want to be, what changes do you want to make, what can you do to influence your decisions so steer you towards your goals?
