    Celeste is a dancer, writer, poet and Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University. Celeste will explore how deepening our relationships with our bodies and our senses can break open vistas of inspiration for writers, performers and artists.

    She will uncover what it means to create from the inside out and integrate the mundane and magic of our daily lives as a way to access the muse within. Celebrating the body in its limits, beauty and paradox, she will weave dance, story, comedy and the poetic to reclaim creating and living with passion from the inside out. Celeste will perform several pieces and improvise using the audience’s contributions.

    Artist Karen Goodfellow thrives on creativity and is fascinated by the inner workings of the creative process. In this presentation, Karen will unmask and lay bare the romantic notion of an artist’s inner and outer world. She will discuss the agony and the ecstasy of the artist’s journey through a start-to-finish multi-media exposé on what it really takes to put on a solo art show.

    On an internal level, Karen will reveal a glimpse into the role of the Muse and discuss the Inner Critic—the speed bumps it poses as well as its positive role in the creative process. On an external level, we will get a glimpse of all aspects of putting on a successful show.
