Share Your Story

Tell us about your own experience with creative confidence.

Let’s dig deep and share one or many of our own creative confidence stories. We know this topic hits close to home for many of us – but we’re curious to hear how.

Perhaps it’s a moment when your creative confidence shone through – what happened, how did you feel, who helped you and what did you learn?

Or, perhaps it’s a time when you were faced with a crisis of confidence – did you overcome this crisis and rise to the occasion or did the challenge get the better of you? What helped (or could have helped) you persevere and push through your fears?

The more visual you can make your stories, the better. You might consider creating a video, working on a quick, colourful sketch or finding a photograph that speaks to your own experience with creative confidence.

the current institutionalized schooling does more harm than good, and there is much to learn from the current system's mistakes.Most of the children lose their confidence in the process of trying to fit in the herd.

When the music starts playing and the time is about to go on stage, I'm someone else, my mind goes blank and I just stop thinking about everything around me; I am just… feeling.

Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, in Brighton UK, is encouraging young people to be involved in curating objects from around the world.  Young people find an object that is from a different country and help to get that object to Brighton.

My personal story of Finding Creative Confidence is Largely because of this online course on NovoEd.
Although as an architect i have used Design Thinking yet DTAL's platform design and course structure was very helping..
