What I’m listening to…
I like listening to art podcasts in the studio. Artist interviews, artist business, studio tips, creativity – the conversation helps keep my brain from intervening between my eyes and hand and saying I’m doing this wrong. Not that I’m dissing my brain! It’s a pretty good one and I’m fond of it. But in the art production game, less thinking/more doing seems to work better.
This week I’m listening to Bonnie Glendinning’s Thriving Artist Summit. It’s a collection of 25 hour-long interviews for artists, designers and makers on topics related to the business practice of being an artist. The interviews are available free of charge for 72 hours after they’re released, for four more days until January 18. Then you can still get them, but by purchase only. (And no, I don’t get a commission if you purchase. I’m mostly into the free content, myself.)
Bonnie Glendinning produced the summit for the first time last year and I really liked it. Plus I found a whole new bunch of possibilities for listening from the people she interviewed, some of whom have their own podcasts.
Listening keeps me showing up in the studio!
What are you listening to as you show up in the studio this week?
