AIR:Shift™ Workshop

Art BuildsAs part of its ongoing effort to provide meaningful professional development for area creatives and other community leaders, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region presented its most recent AIR:Shift™ Workshop over the weekend of January 22-24, 2016. Click here for photos from the workshop.

A program of the Arts Incubator of the Rockies (AIR), the Shift™ Workshop is an entry point into a community of exchange, support and development fueled by a powerful curriculum. Skilled facilitators lead small groups through hands-on exercises, bringing together emerging and established creatives with business professionals for a sustained, collaborative learning experience.

During this innovative workshop you will:

  • Discover new ways to think about the power of creativity and challenge your ideas about art, business, community and money.
  • Learn by doing. Work with a small facilitated group to strengthen your creative muscles, practice design thinking, refine collaboration skills and build a project plan that is achievable.
  • Present your group’s project plan, get feedback, and take part in a personal coaching session.

Tangible benefits from the workshop:

  • Break down barriers between business, arts, and creativity
  • Learn and utilize tools for increased productivity
  • Develop project plans with practical community application
  • Leverage meaningful networking opportunities
