If you spend much time around me or my site, you know there are two things I am truly always passionate about: Creativity and Travel. So it just makes sense the the Jumpstart Creativity Tour is something that would catch my attention.
I’d like to introduce you to Jessica Greene, an amazing and creatively courageous young woman who is on a mission to reconnect ADULTS with their CREATIVITY.
In 2008, Jess went to an art retreat and it changed her life. She had always loved art and design, but had followed other passions on a less risky path to teach science. After three painting workshops, she got a whole new outlook on dreams and possibility.
Fast forward to 2012 when she quit teaching science, painted in Spain for a month, started teaching art workshops, and is elbow deep in running Seek Your Course, a website designed to inspire adults to be creative again, which is where Jess came onto my horizon. The site features a directory of creative retreats, conferences, workshops and ecourses posted by the 130+ instructors that are registered on the site (yes, including me). The SYC Blog features book recommendations, interviews and other inspiring material.
Now Jess is stepping out even more boldly with the Jumpstart Creativity Tour and YOU can help. The tour is being funded as a kickstarter project and you can donate as little as $1, and believe me, every dollar is appreciated!! Organized by Seek Your Course, the tour will be stopping at major cities in the USA and Canada to rally support for creative engagement and get adults making stuff.
Most people do not have jobs that involve making art, building things by hand, or writing creatively. They need opportunities to fulfill that part of themselves. Seek Your Course represents a wide-range of creative opportunities and through the Jumpstart Creativity Tour Jess hopes to further connect adults with those opportunities.
I do believe Creativity saves lives and I wish I could go with Jess on this tour . . . since I can’t I’ve done the next best thing and donated via Kickstarter — won’t you join me ??? Click here to read more about the tour and how YOU CAN HELP!
