SUITABLE FOR ARTISTS & PRODUCERS AT ANY STAGE OF THEIR ARTISTIC JOURNEY
1:1 CREATIVE CONVERSATIONS
μoment creative is a program in which artists, performing art groups, producers and creative professionals are provided practical assistance, advice and motivation on navigating their own professional development in the arts. Each session encourages significant discussions and exchanges around creativity, inspiration and curiosity hoping to lead to productive reflections on the creative process. It essentially puts a context in the capabilities and the broad spectrum of skills artists already have.
With μoment Creative we aim to empower creative encounters between artists and creative professionals, foster discussions and raise questions driven by each artist's own artistic practice and personal creativity. At the same time it offers training development and business tools to enhance the required confidence and clarity to achieve their career goals in the arts world.
μoment Creative is a genuine attempt to create an advantageous, supportive and border-less artistic community of young and established artists, creative professionals and researchers working in the arts. Indirect and long-term goal is to support the diffusion of information, networking and the interconnection of artists for the purpose of exchange of ideas and cooperation between artists residing in Greece, Cyprus and beyond.
In any phase of your artistic career, you might need personalised advice, support, guidance or a space for reflection and brainstorming related to a production challenge, an artistic one, or simply a need to reflect on certain circumstances. μoment Creative establishes a supportive model of active listening, practical tools and creativity, and supports you to take action in your creative process. It also contributes towards making decisions, piloting new concepts, and moving forward.
Essentially, μC puts in a context the capabilities and broad spectrum of skills that artists and creatives already have but may not fully used in their professional career. You might need to discuss, brainstorm or further develop the idea for a new project, decide on your audience development strategy, research touring and funding opportunities, connect with the local communities or explore other topics you need support with.

Georgia H. Storyteller
Constantina is such a beautiful person and mentor!
I have learned so much and acquired new helpful tools and knowledge that I ‘ve been missing in my creative process. I felt stuck and didn’t know how to proceed on a project I had in mind. Thanks to Constantina, I have now discovered new things I want to do as an artist!
Hi, I'm Constantina, artist mentor & community artist with 14+ years of professional experience in the arts. I created μC because I am passionate in building new roadmaps and possibilities that can broaden artistic research, creativity and day to day processes. I deeply believe that through personalised mentoring, you can embrace the necessary time and space for nurturing your creativity, aesthetics and next steps, when you create a new concept as artists, as producers (or both).
Constantina offers a unique approach as a mentor who knows the arts sector from the inside. She’s been an international creative producer for over over a decade, being now an artist mentor and a community artist herself.
She is familiar with a broad range of creative production for performances, festivals and community projects. Constantina understands the importance of giving room for experimentation, curiosity and imagination, as well as time for more solid input and strategic planning that extends across the artistic vision, production needs and the genuine engagement of audiences.
