Creative organisation may sound like an oxymoron, but perhaps it doesn’t have to be. Now who hasn’t jumped on a few decluttering band-wagons? For most of us it has been nothing more than a passing fad. A masterclass marking the release of Sheila Chandra’s book, ‘Organising for Creative People,’ may be just the thing to finally make one stick. It is specifically aimed at artists offering tips and best practices to pursue a successful, creative career. The former Monsoon star has created a handbook of sorts for everything from writing up contracts to keeping your workspace tidy, sometimes obvious but essential things that actually help. Internationally renowned street artist STIK, whose signature stick-men ornate walls in London and around the world, has written the foreword and endorsed the book as he says he owes his success to the guidelines laid down by Chandra. So calling all aspiring Hemingways and Van Goghs; drop the clichéd potpourri of self-destruction, creativity doesn’t have to stem from chaos anymore.
