Jahan + Boyuan

We’re Jahan Mantin and Boyuan Gao, also co-creators of Projectinkblot.com, here to guide you, support you, and give you that loving kick in the ass you've been craving. 

With a collective twenty years of professional experience in editorial, advertising, sales, marketing, youth development, public speaking, workshop facilitation, and management, we’re fully equipped to share all of the mistakes and lessons we’ve learned and continue to learn – along our own creative path – so that you’re saved some of the trouble. Plus, we’ve been to lots of woo-woo workshops on “finding your passion” and we know what works and what’s a waste of time.

Why we created this workshop:

Being creatively stagnated is not fun for anyone. We know, we’ve been there. We love assisting folks in creating the project they've been desiring to bring out into the world, re-discovering their passions, and building community. We believe that when we move on our creative pursuits, we feel alive and purposeful and when we do it in a productive and group setting with like-minded folks, the process is that much more fun.

Why this workshop will benefit you: 

The Inkblot gets you into action so that you're actualizing your idea in the real world instead of having it live on in your head.

Our method:

Participants will be guided through a combination of in-class exercises, group discussions, and video presentations. Participants will be given group and individualized homework assignments every week, with a built in accountability community. Left to our own devices, shit doesn't get done and we've learned that a supportive community is instrumental to being in action and being effective.
