Teresa Piccari’s 21st Century Bohemian radio show (WRFR 93.3 Rockland Maine 99.3 Camden Maine and streaming globally) is a companion piece to the column by the same name she has written in Inner Tapestry for 10 years in which she explores creativity and creative process, featuring interviews with the late Maya Angelou, (The Artist’s Way author) Julia Cameron, and Shakti Gawain, founder of New World Library publishing company and author of Creative Visualization.
Each Tuesday from 6 pm to 7 pm, she will explore, express and celebrate all things creative. Listen in as she hosts local writers, musicians and other artists live on the air. Teresa will also be conducting interviews with creatives from the bigger world via live phone or prerecorded conversations.
Tune in to find out how other creatives do what they do. How do they get inspired or keep going when they aren’t? What really goes into creating a single piece of art or a creative body of work? What are their views on learned skills versus innate talent and ability? How do they nurture and protect their creative work? What about the money part of art? What role do artists serve in society? How do they help instill order and beauty in times of cultural chaos? Why does art matter? What are the tools of their trade and their trade secrets? How did they begin? How do they navigate the world as an artist? What comes next?
She will round out her show with her own perspective on creativity and creative process from her writing career and 20 years as a writing instructor and coach – offering a diverse palette of workshops including Memoir, Creative Writing, Heroic Quest, Creative Process, Creative Daybook, Illustrated Journal and Engaging the Goddess.
She will also offer, from time to time, original writing prompts and creativity exercises. Audience members will also be able to call in and ask questions of guest artists and Teresa.
When she signs off each week, it is Teresa’s biggest hope that the show will have inspired even one person who listened in to be inspired to pick up a pen and put down words that surprise even them, to pick up a camera and go out in the world to make a moving photograph, to write a melody and words that mesh seamlessly, sculpt or cast something intriguing, paint an image they didn’t even know they were thinking about or tell a story they were afraid to tell before.
