Storytelling through the arts can bring immeasurable value to our lives. It can provide an escape from an overwhelming life. It can lower our guards and show us new perspectives. It can be political. It can bring people together.
These three Coke Scholars all agree – art is who they are.
The latest episode of The SIP features incredibly talented artists, storytellers, and creative entrepreneurs:
- Nicole L. Thompson (2010) – Director, Writer, and Producer;
- Adam Pulver (2007) – Theater, Film, and Television Writer; and
- Jared Michaud (2015) – Baritone, Educator, and Facilitator
Listen as they discuss starting a career in storytelling and the arts, growing as an artist, and the importance of creating for people who really need stories right now.
The episode is introduced by Aisha Chebbi (2020).
