Reminder: Monday December 7th –  Angela Schütz

At this busy time of year, as we prepare for the Christmas break – traditionally a time of activity followed by a period of reflection – we welcome your attendance to hear our third speaker Angela Schütz, who will be asking us to examine the creative process itself.


Angela Schütz, a practising artist and psychosynthesis counsellor will present a psycho-spiritual view of creativity and the creative block. Using examples from her own artwork she will be sharing her personal experience as well as inviting us to reflect on our own art practice and to gain a deeper insight into the creative process and what makes it flow.

“Creativity is being in the world soulfully, for the only thing we truly make, whether in the arts, in culture or at home, is soul.”
Thomas Moore

Looking forward to January: on Monday 18th Edward Birch of the Southwark Arts Forum will start our SLWA year off by encouraging us to get out of our studios and work places and reap the benefits of networking. Also, gleaned from time spent at the Arts Council, Edward will give his top tips for making succesful funding appliactions.

We look forward to seeing lots of members and friends at these talks.

Best wishes,

Laura and Liz
