Kevin Hoth


As creatives we are often expected to be "on" all the time, ready to deliver art, thinking and solutions at the drop of a hat, or at least damn near close to it. With movements like slow food and slow vacations on the rise, would it be so odd to give ourselves, purposeful and planned time and space to detach ourselves from any existing patterns or thoughts so we can truly bring new thinking and ideas to the table or canvas? Join us for what is sure to be an inspiring and thoughtful discussion about how time off, getting away and just unplugging to find new avenues for thinking and doing has built the creative life of Artist and photographer, Kevin Hoth.
