A new initiative in summer 2020 is Creativity Conversations, where you can get support, advice and coaching on your creative ideas and projects.

It takes the form of a Zoom call with David Gauntlett, Canada Research Chair in creativity (makes books, music) and Rain Senra-Francois, designer at Creativity Everything (makes graphics, art), both based at Ryerson University.

You can talk about whatever you want, in confidence. You can talk with us about creative ideas or roadblocks, how to get started, how to get noticed, planning what to do next, or anything else about the creative process.

You might be doing music, writing, digital design, jewellery, starting a record label or a fashion brand, or anything creative. We may not have all the ‘answers’ straight away but we can help you work things out.

You pay for this service by making a donation directly to Black Lives Matter Toronto. It’s pay-what-you-can-afford, sliding scale from $30 to $80. (We ask you send us an image of the receipt, so we can count up how much money was raised).

You don’t need to be at any particular stage of a creative journey. You might just be starting out. That’s fine! We are here to help.

To arrange a session, please email david.gauntlett@ryerson.ca.
