slow : series is an idea from Aoife McElwain, the fab food writer and creative events planner. The series of talks hope to tease out slow themes around work, play, time and living and aims to bring together people who crave a bit of slowness, and to find out what we can learn from each other through our experiences so far and our hopes for our futures.

The second of the slow : series, “#2 slow : with creativity” takes place on Saturday 30th of April from 12pm – 3pm at The Stables, The Fumbally, Dublin 8. This talk, workshop and light lunch is an afternoon “exploring the difference between procrastination and percolation, centred around the idea of taking a slower, more compassionate approach to your own creativity”, a workshop exercising creative spontaneity.

Journalist, broadcaster and author Una Mullally, Dublin-based designer, illustrator and key background designer for the Oscar-nominated animated feature film Song Of The Sea, Steve McCarthy, psychologist Dr Loren Duffy and musician and founder-direction of Tonnta,?Robbie Blake will be in conversation with Aoife McElwain to discuss their experiences with procrastination during their creative processes, why we procrastinate and what its value is.

As rather keen procrastinators,?we’re gung-ho for this one!

Tickets are €42.50 (+ booking fee) per person includes talk, workshop and lunch and can be bought here.
