What workshop participants say...
"The presenter was fantastic, she presented her ideas so respectfully, keeping her audience in mind as well as the families she did the work with.....I can go on and on and I am sure you've heard it all from others who attended the workshop. I have shared her ideas in so many different context since." - Sharon Bond www.chironconsulting.org
"The workshop with Poh Lin inspired me to see my struggles from constructive alternative angles... I learned to overcome tight patterns that eventually held me back from progress including my film project. Especially when reviewing my situation in the Skype session I found out some of my habits I saw as "problematic" simply belong to my natural rhythm and being. Once embracing them I saved so much energy by not fighting them anymore, eventually even using them as a powerful tool..." - Pepper, artist, photographer and author www.pepperlevain.com
"I had a big shift in the workshop and it led to an eruption of inspiration, focus and a huge amount of writing! I am now much clearer on what is needed to protect my creative practice and I have more clarity around how to do so." Grace, photographer and educator gracegelder.co.uk
"Poh's workshop was a truly pivotal creative experience for me. With her guidance I was able to find a core personal strength that showed me I could take much bigger creative risks than I ever thought possible. I would highly recommend Poh's workshop to anyone looking to go deeper and further on their creative journey." - Natasha, writer www.natasharivettcarnac.com/
"...with the workshop I was very sceptical. At this time I faced serious doubts and production problems with my movie. But I invested two days of my life to give a try. Poh Lin, during her workshops, with a few simple group exercises and talks opened everyone and helped to name and face major topics. It was a very emotional and physical experience. It is not a magic trick, but therapy work. After the workshop I was ready to go beyond my square. Of course it didn't solve my problems but helped and still helps me to deal with challenges. She was not a super-hero. But I do not think artists need super-heroes. She will not cure your soul, but she will help you to develop as artist and art-worker." - Filip, filmmaker www.plattform.dokomotive.com/autor/filipjacobson
"The workshop made me question my understanding of fragments and narrative. It helped me to embody the two phenomena and to realize that each participant perceives the meaning of them in a different way. Suddenly, I would find myself at important places that I never revisit in my mind. I realized that I had expectations of my practice and that this prevents me from developing and moving pieces that crave to come together. Only two days of the workshop helped me to start developing skills of approaching fragments without fear and expectation." Dragana, filmmaker, https://vimeo.com/draganajovanovic
"the creative narrative workshop with Poh Lin has been the single most important creative development work I have done during the process of making my films. It is a space where you can explore the much deeper and nuanced sides to your creative work that often get left behind in all the 'practical' and 'industry' focus. This instead is a look at the deep metaphors, dreams, memories and images that come to influence and make up your work. In a way it is a rebuilding of your work - but through the lens of pure imagination. This work with Poh Lin is essential for anyone who is pursuing creative endeavours and engages in artistic process". Gabrielle, filmmaker, http://www.gabrielle-brady.com
