🌟Pro Prac review 🌟

As a non artist I’ve found Pro Prac to be a golden gem for intriguing insight into the incredibly varied lives of artists. It’s a grand character exploration of what it means to be creative in your life obviously for those who dedicate their lives to art but also I find personally for a grander contemplation on how we commit time and space for expressing who we are and the priorities we may or may not put on this expression. All in all each artist is totally unique in their personalities and the way they structure their lives and practice. The Pro Prac crew are new to podcasting but they’ve hit the ground running in terms of their curation of diverse individuals and the thoughtful direction they take in cultivating conversation. Well done!

Such a great listen.

So glad I found this podcast!

Yassssss

Wish there was something like this when I was exiting undergrad and was a baby artist with no clue how things actually work and how you actually be an artist in the world. Having said that it’s still pretty useful now. Love these people 👏🏽👏🏼👏🏾
