From Tina Turner to Steve Jobs, from Steve Martin to Joni Mitchell, from Michael Tilson-Thomas to Michael Jackson, from Dr. John to Dr. Phil, from Chicago to the Rolling Stones, from Arthur Ash to Frank Zappa, no single individual has photographed, interviewed and filmed more creative icons from every imaginable field than Norman Seeff. 

At age 17, Norman was drafted as the youngest player in the South African national soccer league.  By age 26, he had become a medical doctor and worked in emergency medicine at Soweto, focusing on the management of traumatic shock. And at age 30, he emigrated to the United States in pursuit of his artistic passions.

Seeff’s work over the last four decades is simply staggering in breadth and depth. His imagery is iconic, and his interviews (most of which have never been seen) are a breathtaking atlas of creativity in our time.

There is a continuity in the arc of Norman's career — the fact that the same individual who began as a healer of trauma victims found a larger role in understanding how creative forces heal and unite societies at large. At EG, Norman will share insights from a lifetime of creative exploration, including interviews never before seen.

Register for EG 2020.

30 April - 2 May 2020

Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a superb program for EG2020. However, in light of growing and legitimate concerns regarding the rapid spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which have gutted international events of all sizes, we have made the difficult decision to put EG on hiatus until it is once again deemed safe.


We know how much each of you look forward to EG and we were looking forward to seeing old friends, and welcoming many new ones, but we do need to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and partners, especially those traveling from afar.

We will be in touch in due course with future plans.
