WANTED: Your Ideas on How Artists & Creatives Can Thrive While Sheltered in Place

Wow! So much has changed in recent weeks.

Our normal, predictable lives have been turned upside-down.

It’s also a time when we can let our creativity shine!

In my view, artists are better equipped than most to find solutions and think beyond the normal.

But, most important, I want YOUR IDEAS on ways you are staying active and continuing to create — and hopefully earning some income too.

What innovative things have you seen other artists do?

Please leave a comment below after you’ve read this!

I plan to compile the ideas and share them through a series of podcasts and blog posts.

I’ll start the conversation …

The obvious thing, which we’re already seeing, is for performers and presenters to deliver their goods online. Using tools like Skype, Zoom, Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube, creatives can still serve their audiences, and even request payment or tips during live broadcasts.

But what else can creatives do to continue sharing their talents and get paid for it?

What unique spin can be put on these live virtual events?

How else can friends gather online?

How about online trivia nights, costume parties, poetry readers, or paint parties?

Please leave a comment below.

Hang in there. Together we’ll get through this!

My mission in life is to inspire & empower people through audio affirmations, guided meditations, books, podcasts, music, art, coaching, and improv comedy.
