Gary Louris Songwriting Workshop: Architectural Insights, Design Process, and Thinking About the Big Picture

Join acclaimed songwriter Gary Louris of The Jayhawks for a unique study into how he writes songs and an inside look into his creative process. Gary works at a place where inspiration meets craftsmanship. Not a storyteller by definition, Gary often works from the inside out, melding the conscious and unconscious to find the space in between. Gary utilizes the Design Process he learned in his nine years as an architect. Come find out what all this means in this presentational workshop that is part lecture, part moderated discussion.
