As part of the Metamorfosize series in May 2020, Leonie Schramm (Germany) initiated the very first session of the Artist Living Room: a virtual roundtable where a number of chosen panelists explore and discuss important questions and subjects related to artistry, creation, and the creative process.
It was quite successful, and following that, we organized a few more sessions of the Artist Living Room from July to September 2020, with featured panelists and pre-selected topics.
For the time being, the Artist Living Room series is discontinued, but who knows? Perhaps the Artist Living Room will see a revival in the near future!
Back when the Artist Living Room was still ongoing, we intended for the platform to:
Encourage open, honest communication that goes beyond the superficial, to promote intelligent discourse, authentic self-expression, and new ways of looking at things.
Dispel the notion that "Creativity = Art", and invite people to think less in terms of "Art-making" and more in terms of "Creation".
Encourage people to Create more and Consume less, to achieve a better quality of life.
Provide an opportunity for various creators from all over the world to showcase their work.
Provide an opportunity for people from all walks of life to spend time with high-performing artists, thinkers, and creators, so they may be inspired to adopt similar habits, try new things, and live more fulfilling lives.
Despite the series being discontinued, we nonetheless had many beautiful conversations and rich content that were created out of these Artist Living Room sessions. You can check them out below.
