Discussion | Creative Skills for Personal Growth

Nadia Tabbara, author of Harness Your Creativity, will be at Beit Insan in Hamra for a discussion on the healing effects of creativity and how she used it to figure out challenges in life and at work. She'll talk about how accepting and nurturing her own creative process (and later encouraging others to figure out their own creativity) helped her grow as a person and become more self-aware. She will share her experiences on moments in life when creative skills helped her make big life decisions, overcome loss or simply get through a hard day.

Join us to be part of the conversation, meet the author and check out her book!

Who should attend this talk?
Creativity isn’t just used to create pieces of art - it’s also a needed skill for self-awareness and personal growth. We encourage you to join us if you want to listen and potentially share challenges you have, if you’d like to gain tips and creativity skills that can be used as coping tools or, if you simply want to meet like-minded people.

A note from Nadia, the author:
Beit Insan is a wonderful space providing accessible wellness services to those in need. It is run by professional and highly trained wellness practitioners. I am neither of those things. I'm simply someone who has used the creative process to write stories, build a business and even, discover more about myself and grow as a person. This creative process (and later my methodology) has helped me deal with my own daily struggles and mental health issues. Once I saw this potential for personal growth, I wanted to share it with others! That's what this talk is about.

She moved back to Lebanon in 2011 and has since opened FADE IN:, growing it into a writing hub focused on educating aspiring writers on the creative process. She is also a professional screenwriter, heading her Writers Room to create internationally competitive television content.
