Creatively Independent: Life on Your Terms with Play, Community and Awareness by Jess Pillmore

THIS INTERACTIVE MANIFESTO IS A CALL TO ACTION: to creatively sculpt the world around us through play, community and awareness; to stop giving weight to life-limiting fears that keep us from taking life-enriching risks; and to start embracing that which makes each of us unique and invaluable.

At any stage in your life or creative process, Creatively Independent will help you invigorate your art - - the art of being you.

Take hold of your art and life with the Rhythms of this Revolution: Vulnerability, Ownership, Divergent Thinking, Collaborative Leadership, As One, Failing Gloriously, High-Stakes, Risk-Taking, Intention and Connection.

Learn how to not only actively form your ensemble but how to encourage trust, creative intimacy and honesty. Most claim it takes years to bond a group but our revolutionary arts education company has proven otherwise. Explore for yourself how to spark the individual inside a dynamic ensemble and live a Creatively Independent life!

Creatively Independent is a playful and provoking workshop in book form, with exercises and creative prompts to help strengthen your ability to expand your life and art with the support of your ensemble. Grab hold of this unique process of art, self-actualization and community building. Perfect for an ensemble (business, art, school, community, family, friends).

About the Author

Jess Pillmore is a national director/choreographer, recording singer-songwriter, published writer and co-founder of the revolutionary arts education company, Creatively Independent. She has spent the past fifteen years exploring the common threads within the performing arts that link humanity together. Those fundamental threads make it possible for her company to teach and create cutting-edge works with artists of all ages and skill levels since 2001.

Jess's artistic explorations include three nationally released folk rock albums, a short collaborative film with HitRECord screened at Sundance Festival 2012, an upcycled knitwear line, A Second Chance, featured in national magazines and a folk rock musical "It's All Right Now". Currently, she is co-writing "Shakespeare's Ensemble", arts education blurring the lines of actor/director and student/teacher to create dynamic theatre.

As a life-long learner, Jess has had the honor of studying with cutting-edge artists in their field: Seth Godin, Kathleen Marshall, Susan Schulman, Gregory Hines, Kira Obolensky and Devora Neumark.

She has degrees from Goddard College (MFA Interdisciplinary Arts '14 expected) and Florida State University (BA Theatre '97).
