Living and Sustaining a Creative Life
Series editor: Sharon Louden
The Living and Sustaining a Creative Life series of books reveal the realities of today's artists and culture producers. With volumes dedicated to the experience of practitioners across the creative arts, these timely publications comprise essays that generously share innovative models of creative lives that have been sustained over many years. Their first-hand stories show the general public how contemporary artists, creative individuals and change-makers of the twenty first century add to creative economies through their out-of-the-box thinking while also contributing to the well-being of others. Although there is a misconception that artists are invisible and hidden, the truth is that they furnish measurable and innovative outcomes at the front lines of education, the non-profit sector, and corporate environments. Intended to spark conversations across and beyond the arts, each path is an inspiring example that provides exceptional insight.
All of the contributors have been chosen by guest editors within a specific field who are distinctive and generous in their own lives, with the aim to inspire new avenues for artists across the creative disciplines to thrive for years to come.
