ephemeral items tell our stories…

Minimalism be damned(ish)! Ditch the replaceable crap but keep records, letters, photos, certificates, ticket stubs – ephemeral items tell our stories and bring solace in times of turmoil

Upcoming Prezo Gigs: Sparking Creativity at “What’s Going On Salon”

I am lining up more speaking and presenting gigs these days to share my stories (and make a bit of scratch). This next one is a “What’s Going On Salon” event at VIVO Media Arts – sponsored by BC Film, Canadian Film And Television Production Association and hosted by Sue Biely.

I’ll be riffing a variation on F@ck Stats, Make Art – basically a soliloquy for nurturing creativity and authenticity.

Blurb:

With a constant flow of information, increased productivity expectations, and a barrage of new technologies – finding inspiration for both artistic expression and entrepreneurial endeavors is a challenge. Despite advanced tools and access to audience, finding the time and motivations to elevate “craft” to “art” remains elusive in an
ephemeral world.

With anecdotes and examples from personal experience, historical classics and contemporary culture, renegade story maker Dave Olson will share tactics for generating ideas and giving context to your content. Through a timeline of personal publishing and start-up biz experience, Dave will share practical tips for fostering authentic self-expression, creating artifacts and finding an audience – in both the present and future.

Note: A similar version of this presentation was shared at SXSW 09, Northern Voice 08, Island Tech 09.
