Inspiration

Creative archives bear the imprints of the imaginings of those involved in their development. They can energise and inspire future work.

  • Can the traces of past creative influences emerge in the archive?
  • What has a sure place in your own creative archive?
  • What is important to archive and why?
  • How does the material in the archive inspire?
