It’s time for Hearsay No6!
This edition is a very special one as we collaborate with WeTransfer to discuss the subject of TRUST.
Hearsay x WeTransfer No6 Trust
An important element of the creative process which sometimes gets overlooked is trust.
The interesting thing about trust is that it takes ages to build and grow, but just one instant for it to break to pieces. In this sense trust is fragile. Whether it’s about trusting in yourself, others around you or even an outside force, trust needs to be constantly nurtured and taken care of.
On WeTransfer’s content site WePresent, we explore the various elements of the creative process – the victories and the successes, but also the flip side of the coin – that of self-doubt and creative block. We think trust sits at the heart of this – because if you don’t trust in yourself or the people you collaborate with, it’s hard to come up with interesting, unexpected creative projects.
At the Hearsay evening we look forward to explore the idea of trust through the stories of some of the talented people we've had the chance to collaborate with.
