The Lightbulb Moment explores electrifying moments of realisation and inspiration from entrepreneurs in diverse fields.
Hosted by cultural entrepreneur and author, Emilya Colliver, we ask entrepreneurs about their “lightbulb moment” i.e. their creative epiphany, to find out what brought it on and how they followed through with it to get where there are today. Each episode is packed with practical tips to work towards your own lightbulb moment.
In this episode, we chat with Elise Slater, an Art Therapist who finds her holding space for individuals and groups to inspire their own a-ha moments of insight and realisation. Using deep listening and intuitive art-making, Elise helps her clients to make sense of and see their own life stories through a new lens.
Elise Slater has had a career facilitating lightbulb moments, from her work as a Trend Forecaster in London where she was tasked with predicting future design trends to inspire creative industries, to mentoring design students in Sydney to come up with radical concepts for social enterprises and new businesses.
In this episode, we discuss Slater's own light bulb moment that came on a hill in India, when both her social enterprise craft project was born and she realised her calling to become an Art Therapist. That was the beginning of the Live Softly Art Therapy Studio in Sydney and the Live Softly Nepal Craft Project.
