MICHAEL MOSCHEN: CREATIVITY

Skill, Risk, Focus, Journey

 

Michael Moschen’s Keynote Address on creativity and the creative process begins by exploring how learning is something we do throughout our entire lives. As we move through life, different individual experiences and evolving environmental factors change the context of how and what we learn. To continue to accomplish the goal of learning, we must continue to acquire new skills. Whatever the subject matter to be explored, our growth is dependent, in large part, on our ability to develop and then implement the skills that are required.

Michael's discussion dissects the idea of what is skill? What does skill liberate? What are its boundaries?

Michael works with audiences to identify what our preconceptions, limitations, and fears are as we undertake creative processes. We are committed to honesty in our process of learning, risk is inescapable.

Before we make the leap into the unknown, we must come to terms with our self-imposed perceptual frames. All of our well-intentioned efforts become labored and unsatisfying unless we can reveal, clearly define, and then embrace our own personal sense of risk.

How we choose what is essential in any given learning situation is determined by the level of our focus. It is the first step in the journey towards realizing the freedom and joy of an expanding awareness.

Creativity starts with the desire to question, the courage to play, and a belief in the unknown.

Michael integrates his own innovative and award-winning performance segments into his Keynote Address to provide examples of his own journey and creative process.

“We spend our entire lives learning. To accomplish much of this we must acquire new skills. Whatever the subject matter to be explored, our growth is dependent, in large part, on our ability to develop and then implement the skills that are required. What is skill? What does skill liberate? What are its boundaries?
