    CREATIVE BAGGAGE CANDID CONVERSATIONS AT NEXTNOW FEST PART 1

    In September 2020, Bailey, Serena, & Justin went to the University of Maryland to host a live podcast interview series with students at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center's NextNOW Fest. We had a candid conversation about about interdisciplinary projects, hopes for the future, and the concept of doing it all. We asked hard-hitting questions, and we were truly amazed at the thoughtful responses and discussion we had. This is the first of our 4-part series from this event!

    Student guests for this episode: Aishwarya, Kai, Sabrina, Matt, Flower STEM (Orben & Vincent)

    “Flower STEM is a student-led organization dedicated to promoting creativity within the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by showcasing interdisciplinary applications where STEM and artistry collide. We want to change the stigma that STEM is restrictive, convoluted, and monotonous by promoting diverse and inviting atmospheres. Our members design and showcase creative projects where they can explore new concepts and learn the skills they want for their careers in a creative and fun manner. To encourage our members to blossom further, Flower STEM hosts expert-led masterclasses, offers a big-little style mentorship program, and partakes on community projects”.

    Special thanks to Selia Myers for inviting us to this amazing event!
