Challenging the human experience by speaking to people who impact the world through art.

    Ch02.Podcast08 Christopher Saunders

    To celebrate March in style, Lauren and Nick sit down with Christopher Saunders to talk about creating social change through art. Not only is he an actor, enabler and creative producer, Christopher is also endlessly curious about how we work together to reframe our stories and connect ourselves to the real humans represented in the tales we tell.

    Through his work with BIGhART, and currently as General Manager of Renew Newcastle, Christopher shares some sage advice on sustainability and drawing on the resources you have to hand, as well as thinking outside the box to make things happen. It's an enjoyable discussion on how to keep your sense of creativity and motivation alive.

    Jam packed into the audio alongside this, Lauren and Nick take the opportunity to realign and focus, establish routine and talk about some amazing creative projects happening in Newcastle and Melbourne currently.

Excellent listening. Engaging and smart

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys intelligent and stimulating conversation between thoughtful and interesting people. An absolute must listen for those considering or working in a career involving performance, writing or any type of creative form that includes telling stories. The two hosts are engaging, smart and give their interview subjects space to answer questions and share experiences. Some great insights into how different types of story tellers approach their form. The interviews have a genuine feeling of a conversation which makes the whole thing a pleasure to listen to. Great audio quality.
