    Creativity is about carving out a space for exploration.


    The name Studio Time is inspired by the author Amy Whitaker who flags the idea that anyone, not just a working artist, can benefit from designated space and time to explore.


    To me, the studio is a place the artist holds as sacred. It’s where you do the work that moves you from where you are, towards the artist you hope to be. A studio can take many forms, from the big open and airy rehearsal space, to the table in the corner of the kitchen or bedroom at home that you put aside for your creative work.


    Time spent in the studio is designated purely for creativity, and when we’re in it we can set aside what is, and imagine what can be.


    The Studio Time podcast explores how you can be an artist in today’s world. What does it take to set aside the time and space to be creative? As the nature of work for people in all industries is changing, where do we stand as artists? Our business models and methods of distribution are in a state of flux - giving you the amazing opportunity to not only be creative about the work you make, but how you get it in front of your audience, the people you’re making it for.


    Spend an hour experiencing the world through someone else’s lens and think about how their lessons might be applicable to you.
