Are you sitting on a great idea that is ready to be born into the world? Here’s how creativity can unlock your big idea.

In today’s fast paced, digital world where the latest news can be accessed and digested in seconds, meeting deadlines and hitting targets can often feel like the most important path for us to follow.

At some point during your creative journey you will have to be willing to share your art; with that comes the risk that others will not share your vision, and this brings a measure of failure.
Being brave enough to share something you’ve created while realising that failing is part of this process is a great confidence booster and will help you challenge your fears and feel less afraid of trying new things. Creativity can unlock your big idea.
