Owning and loving your creative future and why it is so important

we were greeted to creative futures week 2018 and it was mentioned that its the 10th anniversary.

We were told the importance of the arts and that we should engage with other peoples experiences, we also need to ask ourselves ‘what does my future look like?’

We are living in a connected community, a connection of artistic people all with similar thoughts, opinions, even differing ones. There is a mass culture nowadays and there’s a range of activities.

we will fail but we will also succeed.
