“What It Means to Take a Creative Risk”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Time after time, these not so serious podcasts really get into the goods. This one is about that thing people say all the time — take a risk. We try to demystify what that all means and how it can make you freer, and more authentic as an artist. Let’s take some risks people!
POINT #1: “WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?”
– At multiple points in our lives, we’ve heard that sentiment to take risks. So how do you do that? How do you take a risk? What IS taking a risk? Perhaps the better way to look at it is to give yourself permission. Permission to do what? Permission to bring you into your work.
POINT #2: “YOU”
– How much are you actually letting you into your work? How much are you giving your voice, your vision, your experience value? When you listen to that part of you, you begin to make creative choices and take creative directions that are, guess what, RISKY.
POINT #3: “CAN YOU GET ‘INTUIT?'”
– As artists, we have to work from a place that is sometimes a little mysterious, a little illogical, but no less effective. Working from a place of feeling unlocks creative treasures and is the foundation upon which everything else is built.
