Ten Words on engaging the creative spirit

The Ten Words project takes ten suggestions for getting more involved with our city and gave them to local artists to develop creative responses.

Simon Rhodes, director of Smiling Wolf, gave a keynote speech on Engaging the Creative Spirit to an audience on Liverpool’s Waterfront in May 2013. Engage Liverpool took his ten suggestions and gave them to local artists, illustrators and graphic designers.

The contributors created ten wonderful images for each of the ten words – Absorb. Wander. Say hello. Capture good ideas. Take risks. Join the dots. Embrace the spaces in-between. Disrupt your routine. Grumble. Get involved.
