Cara Hagan has been a practicing artist, community organizer, educator, curator, and producer for almost twenty years. Let Cara help you and your colleagues conceptualize a new project, initiative, or structure through creative consultation! Cara's coaching style is collaborative, warm, and delightfully dynamic. You'll be introduced to a host of tools that are useful, affirming, and fun!
Your consultation experience can include a range of services, accessible to a variety of disciplines and price points. Arrange for a one-hour "bounce session" meant to help you consider a collection of ideas and directions. Consider a three-hour "dreaming and devising session" to help you and your colleagues chart a path forward toward the best version of your project, organization, or business. Choose an "Imagineering" package for a project or company restructuring, conceptualizing and executing large projects with lots of moving parts, or to move on a bright, new initiative. The package includes eight hours of session time and a six-month follow-up session to see how your creation is taking shape.
Having been a freelance artist at several parts of her journey, Cara offers special sessions for individual artists and entrepreneurs on a sliding scale.
