Show Notes:
Segment 1 - Notes from the studio. My project is changing before my eyes. It’s hard to listen to myself and not get caught up in the “ideas” of what the project is supposed to be.
Segment 2 - Millenials corner. From a young Vancouver artist, Ileanna Cheladyn, who wrote to me that she fuels her ideas by surrounding herself with people she loves and that love her. Beautiful! Also a great quote from writer performer Jan Derbyshire: “you can’t change the people around you, but you can change the people around you”. Who are you surrounding yourself with?
Segment 3 - Art Police What are your metrics for success? Are you comparing yourself to your real peers? Or art stars who come from money and/or loads of crazy luck?
Your assignment, to collect yourself 
Segment 4 - Inerview with dance artist Miriam Colvin
