Elizabeth Gilbert - Keynote
CREATIVE LIVING BEYOND FEAR
For years, Elizabeth Gilbert has been meeting people who tell her that they long to live more creative lives, but are somehow blocked by fear — fear of criticism, fear of failure, fear of stepping out of the box, fear of unworthiness, or fear that they don't even have a creative bone in their body. Using stories from her own life of creative exploration, as well as experiences from her world travels, Gilbert will show how "everyone is invited,” and will explain how absolutely everybody — no matter what their background or position in life — can benefit from exploring and expressing their own inherent creativity. She will explain how every human life is a creative endeavor, and that creativity is not just a privilege of artists. Defining a creative life as "any life where your decisions are guided by curiosity instead of fear," Gilbert will open up her audience's imaginations to the possibility of seeing creativity, and their own journeys, in a lighter, more easeful manner.
