In its desire to create a series of workshops on creativity, Vivre has recently conducted it's first ever seminar/workshops entitled Live To Create: Workshops On Creativity at The Wife's Tea Bar inside Chingkeetea last June 15, 2019.

With the full support of Chingkeetea, Bowties & Butter, and Uncurated Studio, what was once just a dream has now finally come into fruition.

It is the goal of the said workshop to gather individuals who take interest in learning and immersing themselves in various artistic fields which pays attention to photography and creative writing which were facilitated by the following speakers: Pearl Aton, Alve Aranton, and Bjorn Lim

Pearl spoke about rediscovering the art of film photography; Bjorn spoke about digital photography and how to take better photos; and Alve spoke about creativity, as well as tackling the age-old struggle on overcoming creative blocks. 

The workshop was participated by 10 people. Though small and intimate, the afternoon went on filling the room with inspiring and thought-provoking discussions on art, dealing with rejection and criticism, and establishing one's creative pursuits.

As an ice breaker during Alve's talk, the participants were asked to introduce themselves and why they decided to join the workshop/seminar. Some of them said that they were already getting started on carving their path in photography. Others simply wanted to learn more about the topics.

Vivre also gave away some disposable cameras and copies of Stanzas & Stills (Alve and Pearl's first zine) to the participants.

As another creative passion project has come to a close, Vivre looks forward on hosting yet another series of workshops focusing on other mediums of art.

  1. I've been surfing online over three hours today, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's really sufficiently worth for me. As I would see it, if all website admins and bloggers made great substance as you did, the web will be significantly more valuable than any other time in recent memory. home decor upcycle
