Clan - A get-together for creative folk | September: Back to School
17 Sep 2019 7pm - 9:30pm
The Clan event series is for creative people who want to find, strengthen and make the most of their creative voice. Each month we’ll focus on a different area of life and creativity with workshops and discussion to inspire, encourage and help you. You’ll also get to meet like-minded creative folk, swap ideas, collaborate and feel supported as you try out new things professionally, personally and creatively!
We give you:
- A beautiful and quirky location to get your creative juices flowing
- Refreshments and good food through the evening
- A speaker to inspire you on our theme
- Group and individual exercises to overcome your obstacles
- Detailed printed notes and writing to take home (and some creative treats too)
- Discussion and celebration time with a creative community
- Two hosts who love creativity and personal development (and happen to be siblings)
Come to just one monthly event, a few which take your fancy, or attend every month to build connections and a personal toolkit of tips and exercises you can use throughout the year.
September’s theme: Back to School
No matter how old we get, every September we get that excited feeling of ‘back to school’. We want to buy all the stationery, crank up our creativity and use some of that new season energy to work on our latest and greatest ideas … but we’ve also found that it’s easy to get distracted, start worrying about whether we’re doing the ‘right’ thing, and slip back into old habits and negative thought patterns.
At our September event, we’re going to look at:
- Confidence-boosting tips to help us feel positive
- Ways to pick and define projects you want to work on (so you’re less distracted!)
- Some simple tools you can use to prioritise everything you want to do
… as well as giving us time to chat with our creative community, find solutions for shared problems and have a Q&A with our speaker.
Your speaker for September is Eleanor Snare.
Eleanor is an artist, writer and mentor to creative people, helping them find their voice and use it to change the world. They’ve been working in communication as a marketer, copywriter, comms specialist and business consultant for nearly 10 years, including as a university tutor and conference speaker. You can see more of what they do on Instagram @eleanorsnare and their website www.eleanorsnare.com
We’re Eleanor and Rebecca Snare and we’re two siblings who love creativity, personal development and getting people together for a good time. We both did art-led degrees and love everything creative, from floristry and watercolours to poetry and pottery. As kids, we were super creative, but both of us struggled to maintain that as adults and ended up doing ‘other stuff’ for a long time. Now, we’re committed to living creative lives and helping other people do that too.
Our event is held at The Greenhouse, a co-working space in Meanwood full of plants, people and positive vibes. Parking is available nearby in the carparks of Aldi or Waitrose, or in nearby residential areas. There is no parking on site. If you will be driving and are willing to car share, please let us know and we will connect you with other attendees. There are regular buses from central Leeds including the number 91 and number 7.
Openness and accessibility
Our events are open to people of all gender identities, ethnicities and bodies. Events are 18+. Please let us know when you book a ticket about your dietary requirements. Entrance to The Greenhouse is via a slight upward path and there are three small steps into the doorway. We are currently trying a source a ramp for anyone using a wheelchair (we are in the middle of requesting permanent step to ramp conversion from our landlord). If you will be using a wheelchair or other aid then please let me know and we will sort things out for you. Our bathroom is gender neutral.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
