Art Yourself Alive

Art Yourself Alive

Art Yourself Alive podcast shares the lived experience stories of those who have embraced creativity, in any of its glorious forms, to support their own growth, healing and mental / physical health. We span the spectrum of stories that illustrate how the Arts can literally save your life or introduce you to even deeper depths of aliveness within yourself. The artywisdom from these conversations plants seeds in the listener to whisper the encouragement and permission they have been waiting for to begin their own creative journey and empower themselves to follow their curiosity, honour their own inner landscape and celebrate all the colours that they are. New podcast released on Tuesdays - Fortnightly Hosted by Vikki Parker - Artist / Founder of Doodle Cafe / South East Champion for the Lived Experience Network (LENs) www.vikkiparker.com
