That's Creative brought to you by Annie Dalton and Gareth Lewis Shelton from PopUp Painting - We’re all creative in our daily lives, often in ways we might not realise. In this podcast we meet these types of people, from all walks of life; from entrepreneurs to painters to academics - diving deep and exploring the lives of some fantastically creative people! Happy listening.
Previously, 52 Conversations hosted by us.. 52 Convos was about sitting down and just having a chat. We spoke to a different person each week, with each guest recommending the next person.
Rosie Hill - That's Creative!
Creative activities have a strong reputation for being calming and relaxing. We were lucky to sit and talk to Rosie Hill about her experience from being an artist to her adventures at music festivals and discovering all about her retreats. So what does artist, yoga, and meditation leader Rosie Hill have to say about it all?
Jarelle Francis - That's Creative!
How does someone go about curating an exhibit? How do you find the right artists for your show? Gain a fantastic insight into how to go all about curating in the art world. In this episode, we spoke to exhibition curator and Green politician Jarelle Francis about art, work, and politics.
Thank you Enjoy!
Tom Blackford - That's Creative!
Where does street art come from? What’s it all about? What’s within the law and what’s not? In this episode we spoke to street artist Tom Blackford (tag Inkfetish), and he answered all your burning questions about this edgy art form. Tom’s a practicing street artist and designer. He talked us through the way he approaches his work and what life is like as an artist in 2020.
Again, please forgive sound quality. Thank you & enjoy!
Flo Broughton - That's Creative!
One of the exciting things about being involved in a small business like PopUp painting is being able to meet other people in similar positions. A few years ago at one of our events we met Flo Broughton, founder of ChocOnChoc.
ChocOnChoc is a family business, making quirky and delicious handmade chocolates. From chocolate paintbrushes to chocolate animals - their designs are beautiful. Flo talked us through the story of her business, how they approach their fantastic designs, and how they weathered the coronavirus crisis from their COBA (Chocolate Office Briefing Room A).
Iain Baker - That's Creative!
What’s financial control got to do with creativity? Turns out the answer is a lot. In this episode we spoke to Iain Baker, Finance Director of PopUp Painting. His experience crosses across industries and continents: Iain shared his experience working for airplane manufacturers, life in South Africa, and what it’s like being a glider pilot!
Max Cotton - That's Creative!
We first met Max at his PE For Grown Up sessions with WeWork - and he really put us through our paces! Max has extensive experience as a personal trainer. He talked to us about making exercise fun and accessible, and the creative thought process needed in designing workouts. We also learnt about how he’s been able to adapt his business during lockdown, setting up Train Badass to provide online personal training and classes. This is a great, motivating episode to listen to when out on a run!
