“The Line Between Stealing & Inspiration”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
When and how does taking inspiration from someone else’s work become straight up plagiarism? We discover some potential answers that reveal a complex territory that leaves plenty of room for us to grow and learn as artists.
POINT #1: “ARTISTRY GOES THE EXTRA MILE”
-Copying keeps us in a place that is safe and “fine”. Our artistry urges us to move beyond that and explore where else we can take it — becoming inspiration.
POINT #2: “LEARN TO TRUST THE VOICE OF YOUR EXPERIENCE”
-When we learn to trust that we have lived unique lives and experiences, we connect more deeply to our authentic artist voices and offer them fuller expression in our work.
POINT #3: “STEALING COMES FROM TRYING TO BE RIGHT”
-Trying to be right works against us as artists. When we are trying to be right and not trusting our voices, we will find ourselves in the tendency to copy what others have done with no trace of ourselves left.
