Creativity is now recognised as the
key ingredient, not only of the successful artist, but also of the
successful chief executive and organisation. The Arts Clinic has devised
a unique method of working, It comprises a powerful blend of psychological
techniques and philosophical insights, combined with a specialist
knowledge of individual and organisational creativity.
We link the practical with the imaginative for
constructive solutions and original initiatives. This will enable
an individual to manifest their full potential, from concept through
implementation to result.
Mentoring for Creative Business
An opportunity for middle to high-level executives
in the creative industries to improve their performance through a
programme of one-to-one sessions.
Creativity is essential for every
aspect of individual and organisational life. In the business environment
this understanding aims to develop confident handling of work and
personal relationships, inspirational leadership, the ability to define
and implement clear goals and to continually generate fresh vision.
It can be applied to such issues as the initiation of internal organisational
change, the negotiation of imposed, external change, the management
of a career re-orientation, or the successful induction into a new
organisational position. It can also help put it right when things
go wrong. It is often lonely on the way up and can be even lonelier
at the top and frightening to feel the downward fall. Mentoring offers
a safe place to explore the personal and the professional.
Creative Development for Artists
A programme of one-to-one support which allows
the artist to foster their individual creativity and long-term creative
development through a therapeutic relationship.
Difficulties in harnessing creative energy may
surface in many ways ; such as creative block, burn out or anxiety.
The Creative Development programme gives the artist a full understanding
of the creative process and their own unique ways of fully expressing
creativity. It also deals with the application of creativity in real
terms to a particular project – for example, an album, performance,
career transition or writing project.
The pressures of celebrity are a unique feature
of this age. It is virtually impossible to be a success nowadays
without the accompanying fame. There is nothing that prepares someone
for the impact of celebrity, not only on their own lives but also
on personal and working relationships.
Maintaining a sense of identity is often an extremely
difficult negotiation. It entails dealing with public acclaim or
censure, acquiring fame or losing it., along with defining and maintaining
an awareness of self.
The aim of this programme is to encourage a centred
self that is strong enough to be able to distinguish between the powerful
projections of others and what is real and meaningful to their own
identity and creative development.
