Lorne M. Buchman // Nicole Mueller // Amanda Adams // The Future of Art and Design Colleges
Lorne M. Buchman, President of ArtCenter College of Design and host of Change Lab podcast, speaks with Beyond the Studio co-hosts Nicole Mueller and Amanda Adams about the shifts happening in higher education, how art and design colleges are responding to the financial challenges of the pandemic, rethinking the model in order to increase sustainability, access, and affordability, what organizations can learn from adopting a mindset similar to that of individual artists, and key questions we should all be asking within the arts at large.
About Beyond the Studio: Beyond the Studio is a podcast that focuses on the behind the scenes work of visual artists— how they're supporting and sustaining themselves and their creative work. Co-hosted by artists Nicole Mueller (San Francisco, CA) and Amanda Adams (Baltimore, MD), Beyond the Studio features candid conversations with contemporary artists, makers, and art world professionals about their business practices, time management, financial planning, and how they're navigating the unique challenges of making a living, creatively. Artists are inherently resourceful, resilient, and ambitious, with a unique and diverse set of skills. Beyond the Studio wants to know how they're connecting the dots in their own life, and demystify the process. It's founded on the belief that by sharing these stories openly and honestly, artists will feel more empowered and become better equipped to live out their own creative life's work. The podcast can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and on their website www.beyondthe.studio

So nice to hear real artists talking about their processes and teaching philosophy. Refreshing honesty.
Audio quality matters
I want very much to listen to this podcast, but the recording quality is so bad that I can’t focus on what people are saying. It sounds like it was recorded on a cassette player hidden inside a lunchbox. I realize that this production is a labor of love by devoted, highly educated professionals who could be doing much less generous things with their time and talents. But please, can someone find a friend or grad student or somebody who can help these folks out with some recording and sound editing assistance?
