This bonus episode features an inspiration, a trailblazer, my dream podcast guest. I had the honour of sitting down with Director Ava DuVernay, and there's a real possibility I'll never get over this. Ava has racked up film accolades - two Oscars and four Golden Globe nominations, four Emmy awards, a Peabody award and a BAFTA. Her work includes Selma, 13th, Jay-Z's Family Feud video and, of course, 2018's A Wrinkle In Time. The Disney produced fantasy film in out in cinema's now.
How you can use your creativity to speak to minorities
How great collaborators can lead you to success
The importance of doing something creative everyday
Why you shouldn't take creativity for granted
Why perfection is a myth
Why it's never too late to pursue a craft
In an exclusive roundtable, Ava shares her wisdom on creativity and inclusion. The episode bursts with philosophies and actions - you'll learn how to flex your creative muscles, use creativity to inspire change, and find the best collaborators along the way. Ava also opens up about her biggest flaw (something I think many of us struggle with). She also talks about what she's doing to improve this issue.
I talk about how Ava's tips apply to me, a young creative black woman, and how they could relate to you. Ava's episode is like a three course meal for creatives - dig in!
