The Making Places podcast!
I'll be talking to artists, creatives and social entrepreneurs about how they've created places specifically for their own projects, practices and passions. I'll be taking a look at studios, makers spaces and art centers and chatting with the people who make them happen. Plus news and views on the latest creative placemaking research and how it influences the contemporary art world.
I love to talk. Get me talking about art and community and we'll be chatting for hours! In Making Places I'll be brewing up a pot of English tea, pouring a cup for myself and my guest and having a good chinwag about how to create places where community and art can thrive. Interested in being a guest? It doesn't matter where you are in the world, with the magic of the internet we can make this happen.
Send me a message and let's talk.
making places 1: places where art is made
Where do you create? At the kitchen table, a spare bedroom, basement of your house? Or maybe you have a studio either in the home or elsewhere. I want to know where your making places are, how you found them, how you finance them, what they look like, and what happens in there.
If you'd like to chat with me about your making place, send me a message and let's talk.
making places 2: a place made for community
Have you created a place - physical, online, ephemeral or conceptual - with a specific community in mind? This doesn't necessarily need to be a creative community, perhaps it's a local, social cause or a community that is spread across the world. What were the challenges to creating this place and how did you overcome them? What advice would you give to others? How do you keep this place vibrant, energetic and relevant?
I want to hear from you. Send me a message and let's talk.
