Interviews + Observations

Let’s go out into the community and learn from the people around us.

From the barista expertly catering to a crowd in a busy coffee shop to the street performer strumming a guitar on the corner – what examples of creative confidence do you see in your neighbourhood? Have a think about someone in your own family or community who exudes this kind of confidence – how do they show it and live it? Be sure to take pictures and videos to share back with us.

But don’t stop there – download our Interview Toolkit to dive deeper. Let’s learn more and build empathy through interviews.

A piano in a busy train station? A seemingly unfit place...but why not? Incorporating play outlets in spaces we aren't traditionally creative in eliminates the unnecessary dichotomy between creativity and daily life; breading creative confidence.
