Creative Workshop: Paint your dream

  • Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre 251 Faraday Street Carlton, VIC, 3053 Australia (map)

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” Eleanor Roosevelt once said. What are your big dreams? Are you moving towards them – or did you get a little lost along the way?

In the busyness of everyday life, it’s easy to become disconnected from our dreams. Sometimes we stop dreaming altogether and get stuck thinking small, caught up in the stories we tell ourselves. 

In this Beyond Story workshop, you’ll reconnect with forgotten dreams and discover new ones through painting and drawing. Experienced StoryArtist Raymond Lim will also share his own story about how creativity helped him discover and reach for his dreams.

In a fun, creative and nurturing space, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Tap into and cultivate your creativity through painting and drawing
  • Unveil your unique strengths and passions
  • Explore what drives you and what you envision for your life
  • Find new inspiration to take action towards your dreams
  • Gain clarity about where you’re heading on your life journey
  • Feel more connected to yourself and to those around you

This workshop is for everyone – no artistic skills needed. It’s all about using your creativity to connect with your inner self. You might be surprised by what you can create – and what you discover about yourself.
