The Magic of Co-creation

Founder of the Illumin8tors Arts Collective, co-creator and coordinator of its projects since 2010, Estel Vilar talks us through a couple of exciting events she has coming up...

The Magic of Co-creation

Art can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and healing. Through it, we can project our internal struggles, our identity or story, to transform it and transcend it. But more than this, the self-knowledge through art can also go deep into spirituality when we acknowledge our power of creation.

In this talk we will present and discuss the benefits of artistic expression for the development of the individual and the human civilization, and we will emphasize the importance of co-creation as an especially enlightening experience to understand the way we interact with others and construct our lives.

I will illustrate the presentation by sharing my experience with the work in the Illumin8tors Arts Collective, which produces co-creative pieces combining original music, dance, visual art, poetry, etc. in Shanghai since 2010.

Art Project Co-creation Workshop

During this half day workshop we will stimulate our inner artist with several creative exercises open to choice, and develop the form or forms of artistic expression most attractive for each of the participants: music, dance, storytelling, poetry, crafts, painting… This workshop intends to boost creativity and to unveil the magic of co-creation: what happens when we share our creativity with others and make something together beyond what we can each separately imagine?

We all have an artist inside, we just need to be willing to share our ideas, express our thoughts and emotions in any way we like. The goal is not to impress anyone with amazing artistic techniques, but to discover how we can do amazing things when we work together. The final work might become a concert of light, a dance of brushes, a mural of sounds, or anything else… But it will become most of all, an unforgettable experience of self-transformation and sharing.

Note: Art materials, musical instruments, and other artistic resources will be provided for the session; however we encourage everybody to bring their own artistic tools for their own expression and to share with other participants.

Benefits:

  •   Stimulating creativity in the individual and the group.
    
  •   Training transversal organization and increasing cooperation efficiency within a working team.
    
  •   Deepening individual self-knowledge and finding fulfillment through artistic expression.
    
  •   Providing a space and tools for self-transformation and maturation of the group.
