SANTA FE ― After more than 10 years of smuggling creativity into the business sector without getting busted, Tania Katan’s new book Creative Trespassing: How to Put the Spark and Joy Back into Your Work and Life is a refreshing look at how to fit creativity into the seemingly mundane.
New Mexico Museum of Art and Creative Santa Fe are partnering on an engaging event March 9 with Katan at St. Francis Auditorium.
Katan is a creative disruptor by nature and the brain behind the viral sensation #ItWasNeverADress, which aspired to shift perceptions about women, initially by transforming the ubiquitous bathroom sign from a dress-wearing woman to one donning a superhero cape. Currently she empowers people and companies to be a little unruly and sneak more creativity into less overtly creative spaces like cubicles and boardrooms.
Published by Penguin Random House, Creative Trespassing is peppered with stories of Katan’s own shenanigans throughout her life.
“You don’t have to turn into a corporate drone to kick ass in the working world,” Katan said.
She is here to tell you that any task or pursuit can be a creative one. You just need to be willing to defy conformity, and be ready to conjure imagination anywhere, at any time.
“This book is an invitation to find inspiration where others see only limitations, because when we believe that logic and limits are subject to change, the world is full of possibilities,” Katan said. Her talk will deliver tools and strategies for taking more creative risks, leading with more imagination, facing fears and embracing obstacles as an opportunity to accelerate growth and the ability to find inspiration where others see only limitations.
Joining Tania onstage is Jen Sincero, a #1 New York Times bestselling author and success coach. She has helped countless people transform their personal and professional lives via her products, speaking engagements, newsletters, seminars and books. Her newest book, You are a Badass Every Day is the companion to keep you fresh, grateful, mighty and driven.
