NEW! Nothing is Personal: The Art of Receiving Feedback

February 15 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

How feedback-resilient are you when it comes to your art?  

Receiving feedback is a valuable part of developing almost any artistic skill and in pursuing the business of art. It can also bring our vulnerabilities to the forefront and make us question our worthiness as an artist if we let it.  

 This workshop invites you to examine feedback through the eyes of an entrepreneur, as we equip you with strategies to transform rejection into opportunity and to leverage the gift of feedback for business growth.  

 We’ll challenge the assumption that feedback must be either positive or negative and explore effective communication to improve your feedback conversations with others.  

 Join us if you are ready to practice the art of receiving feedback! 

Guest speaker: Stacey Lavender | YES Artist Business Coach 

About the speaker

Stacey Lavender is an ICF Accredited Coach (ACC), Mentor and Facilitator who has spent most of the last 10 years combining her love of travel with a career as an arts worker and artist across the independent theatre and Fringe festival landscapes in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.  

Stacey completed a Bachelor of Performing Arts (Music Theatre) with the National Academy of Singing & Dramatic Art (NASDA) in New Zealand and more recently, graduated from the Global Coaching Academy based in Perth, Australia.

Stacey provides an encouraging space of creative exploration, partnering with clients to create an accountability framework which aligns with the individual.
