Wheesht

Creative Making in Uncertain Times
Kate Davies

Description

In Wheesht, Kate Davies asks how we might best enable and encourage our creative practice in the face of ambivalence, uncertainty and doubt.

She poses a set of radical and redefining questions. What if, instead of breaking or disrupting, we made mending and repair the focus of our work? How might creative praxis change if it became more about bringing other people forward than blowing one’s own trumpet? What if we stopped wishing for creative freedom and thought much more carefully about what limitation or impediment might have to show us? Might shutting up and hauding our wheesht (remaining silent) be, in the end, of as much importance to our creative work as other, louder, forms of expression?

Whether you like creating words or images, sounds or sweaters, at moments of uncertainty it is important to try to find new things to say and different ways in which to say them. With her firm belief that simple acts of making can always make things better, this book is Kate Davies’ creative call for us all to remain silent and listen, before making our work, with conviction, with purpose and with heart.
