There are many reasons why inspiring young people is vital for their development into adult life. Nurturing a persons creativity will allow them to become the best version of themselves, resulting in a more creative, adaptable and well rounded individual. The creative arts projects and workshops I plan and deliver are holistic in nature, taking into consideration the purpose and needs of its participants, addressing the issues within society, providing another dimension in peoples lives and allowing young people to experiment and play.
Learning through creativity and play; never underestimate how much a human being needs to nurture their creativity and be able to play. Rekindling these elements of our childhood can have a profound impact on an adult, but maybe an even more profound impact on a young person or child.
Addressing the issues within society; modern society can burden young people and adults with immense pressure, feeding negative aspects of a personality and making it hard to cope. Through creativity we can examine these issues without putting pressure on sharing personal circumstances. Exploring important issues in this way can inform, comfort and allow an individual to start processing their thoughts and feelings.
Providing another dimension within a persons live; this very important aspect of all creativity is vital for the well-being of an individual. Enabling someone to tap into their creative ideas and concepts can lead them to increased awareness of the many dimensions of life, opening their eyes to the endless possibilities they may have not yet seen.
