Keri Smith has published a number of books encouraging people to observe, explore, discover, and document the world around them and be creative. Might this type of "mission" approach be used to cultivate creative confidence?
This book takes a 'mission' approach - there are 59 missions in the book, each encouraging explorations of your surroundings, and documenting them as well.
There is no right or wrong, this is how you see the world. It is open ended, yet structured, creating limitations within which to work, making it a safer space for someone who might not be that confident yet.
Might books and approaches like these be used to make young people more aware of their environment, and more confident in how they interact with it, leading to greater creative confidence?
