with Nicole Owen 

When you step onto a film set, do you feel like you have been tossed into an arena with thousands of eyes watching your every move with lions and tigers circling around?

As a woman in the film industry, you are faced with challenges unlike others in your field. It requires courage and resilience to face the lions every day in the arena and stay true to who you are and your creative expression.  In this four-hour workshop, we will address what it means to Show Up, Be Seen and Live Brave™ as a woman in the Alberta screen industry. 

We will explore:

  • How vulnerability is a source of courage and strength, even amidst challenging circumstances
  • The obstacles that hold us back in our creative pursuits
  • Having a vision and belief in yourself, regardless of the outcome
  • The challenges women in the film industry face and navigate through for the sake of your personal creative fulfillment

How you will benefit:

  • Courage and confidence to stay on the path toward your full creative expression
  • Specific tools and practices to build your resiliency muscle
  • Grow authentic and meaningful support systems
  • Renewed belief in yourself and the knowing that, no matter what, YOU ARE ENOUGH!

The content of this workshop has been adapted from The Daring Way™ curriculum, an experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.  The foundation of this curriculum is to examine the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that hold us back and identify new choices and practices that will move us toward authentic, courageous living. The goal and hope is for every individual to reach the end of their life knowing that they lived, loved and lead with their whole hearts.

Nicole Owen is a Professional Certified Coach and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator who helps Artists to be fully creatively expressed without the misery, frustration and depression that seems to accompany the creative life. She takes the “struggling” out of the “struggling artist”.
