Monthly Social - One Thing That Scares Me June
Come be inspired and inspire others to take a step into the un(or barely)known at One Thing that Scares Me, our new monthly night dedicated to overcoming trepidation and turning challenges into opportunities.
On the last Thursday of every month, Guild members will speak about risks they’ve taken that have paid off (perhaps in surprising ways!) and chances they are contemplating today: maybe a move into something new, expanding on their current practice, or rethinking the path they’re on.
As well as being a lot of fun, these monthly socials support the work of our hosts, the truly lovely team at Regather. By day, Regather are committed to ethically sourcing delicious fruit and veg for the people of Sheffield. By night, they run this cosy events space (just a ten minute walk from town!) with a welcoming atmosphere and plenty of tasty beer options.
The talks will be followed by music, performances and visual art from our fearless members that will leave you ready to take on the next month.
In June, you can expect to hear from:
Annalisa Toccara, award-winning cultural producer, freelance marketer
and founder of Our Mel.
In our social media dictated world where communicational updates are
fast and frequent, it can seem as though everyone else is moving forward
apart from you. After a long period of depression, anxiety and even suicidal thoughts, how do we reclaim what's lost?
Simon Cookson, Co-founder of Northern Value Creators
Come and hear the story of how I spent 20 years valiantly trying to avoid sales, and failing miserably. Starting out yearning to get into advertising despite 'not being the creative one in the family' and eventually finding myself walking out of a high-stress agency sales role. Hear how I learned to love the thing I was most scared of.Image taken from Helen Barker's website: helenbarkerpainting.com
After Annalisa and Simon's short talks, artist Helen Barker will treat us to a live painting demonstration: a One Thing that Scares Me first! Helen recently moved from painting in oils to painting in watercolours, and watching her work is both a lesson in making beautiful art, and a very soothing experience.
