“Tür olarak yaratıcılık hepimizin doğuştan özelliği. Yaratıcı olarak kimsiniz; bunu nasıl dürüstçe, içinize sinen ve kimlikli bir şekilde dünyaya aktarabileceksiniz? Bireysel yaratım koçluğu, sizin kendi tarihçenizden ve ilgi alanlarınızdan yola çıkarak, özgün yaratım stratejinizi, yani yaratıcı kimliğinizi, dilediğiniz bir teknik ile araştırmaya, keşfetmeye, geliştirmeye ve sunmaya yöneliktir. Hadi birlikte içinizdeki özgün yaratıcı potansiyeli keşfedelim!”Tolgay KeskinFounder of Filtre Platform
In the individual and proactive process, lectures, learning, examples, exercises and individual studies are tailor-made to be the most productive for the individual. In one-on-one sessions and out-of-session work, the focus is entirely on the participant and their own production.
The efficiency of the process is maintained with follow-up and feedback between sessions.
As we train and enjoy creative thinking, new neural networks begin to form in the brain. Thus, you can think more agile, practical, positive/humorous, flexible; in other words, creative. You can develop plenty of alternatives. You can enthusiastically explore different solutions in a positive way.
Even if you don’t realize it, there are people who are curious about your story, who want to get to know you, who are eager to share your language and your world. There are those who want to say, “I can communicate with him, I understand him and I believe him.” Because by connecting with you, by your inspiration, they can transform, evolve and discover themselves. After all, to learn a language is to be enlightened by the concepts that come with that context. You can meet those who are curious about you through creative expression, one of the most comprehensive and effective methods.
Whatever you do, when you start from your uniqueness, when you express spontaneity and incorporate it into your work, you will reach life satisfaction and peace. You are honest with yourself.

Tolgay Hoca's energy and friendliness was one of the most motivating things. I always looked forward to the days of my training :)I never lost my excitement from the day I started the training and as a result, I found that gem in me. I gained great knowledge and when I applied it to my social life, I realized how good it was for me. It allowed me to learn very clearly the emotions and characteristics that I was not aware of in myself and I believe that it will bring me to much better places now. I hope everyone has the opportunity to meet Tolgay Hodja one day!Elfin Yenigün
The Creativity Workshop is a wonderful workshop that focuses on the creative side of you from the beginning to the end, enabling you to bring out whatever form your inner creator takes and whatever form it wants to evolve into. As much as the technical information given in this workshop on the journey to creation, it is also very valuable that Tolgay teacher works on you like a tailor. The way it reveals your mind maps to your creativity and finally presents them to you and holds a mirror to yourself from the inside is priceless.Ilayda Aydin
There is a big difference between the Ilayda I knew at the beginning of the workshop, who had the goal of becoming a writer, and the Ilayda I knew at the end of the workshop, I can better see the workings of my mind, my own thoughts, and I rediscover the ways and techniques of transferring them to writing with a different eye. On the one hand, this workshop will allow you to have fun with your true self, and on the other hand, it is a wonderful time to be spent with a creative coach who will work harder for you than you do... I wish that everyone who has the goal of creating something will donate this gift and this time to themselves.
