Episode 006: Thoughts on Creativity, Art, Design and Craft | the merriweather council podcast

In this episode I share some thoughts that I just KNOW you will get on board with. Throughout my life I have felt drawn to art, design and craft and my experience in my BFA program was a little bit weird for me. I’ll share with you why and what my personal take on the connection between art, craft and design really is. I’ll also talk about validity in your creative career and why I don’t think you need a degree. Tun in now to hear it all!

In this episode:

  • The blurry / non existent line between art, design and craft.
  • Why you don’t need a degree in order for your work to be valid.
  • Why I don’t lead with my college credentials.
  • Why I think creativity is a hugely valuable element in our society.
  • Much more!

Listen now and feel free to share your creativity philosophy with me in the comments!
