Living Your Possibilities - From Healing to Action

23-29 July 2022

Registration now open!

 

Creative Leadership aims to be an inclusive space for diverse participants from around the globe to come together and reconceptualize leadership. The conference will take people on a journey of personal and collective growth, using the arts, storysharing, workshops and dialogue groups. These tools will help participants unlock their own leadership potential.

This year’s theme “Living your Possibilities: From Healing to Action” is a response to global events, times of uncertainty and rapid change. To take action and create our own change, we must begin by reconnecting with our inner voices and finding our own healing process. The conference will be based on the idea that healing is a continuous process that requires conscious effort and deliberate action in our day-to-day lives.

We will begin each day with time for individual reflection and growth. Activities will then focus on fostering a culture of solidarity and collective healing through compassion, awareness and overcoming individualism. Finally, we will explore creative methods to reignite participants’ energy to take personal and collective action.

Now more than ever, conscious leadership and collective action are required. This is an opportunity to empower global voices to come together to try and find hope and healing for themselves and their communities.

What past participants said

‘Throughout the journey, we focused on being more positive, action-focused. As we pictured moving forward, we focused on those things that help ground us and help us find purpose. As we find perspective and shift our attitude, we can think about how we can actively take control of our lives and stimulate progress. I've walked away feeling inspired and with a vast global community who relate to me and I relate to.’

‘We learnt that coming out of the troubles during our journey we have to have courage and empathy to go to our destiny, and to empower others.’

‘I felt like I was a little rock that was close to the bank of a flowing river. There was some sort of divine intervention, some force that picked up that rock and threw it closer to the flowing water. The flowing water is the Creative Leadership experience, which is filled with so many good things, and now I am being constantly washed and purified. Re-learning and unlearning. That is how I would summarize my experience.’
