As I continue to think about the best ways to tell the stories of artists, it dawned on me that sometimes I’ll need visual components as well as audio. As a result, I came up with the concept called Artists in Action that will soon debut on this site.
The foundation is still based on my interview with the artist. But instead of being a straight audio podcast (which we will continue to do with great enthusiasm), the post will include text, audio, and video - all in bite-sized servings. This allows the viewer to get to know the artist in a different way.
You could simply read the story based on my interview, listen to the artist share an anecdote via the embedded audio player, or watch the short video that’s also included in the post. Not surprisingly, my recommendation is to do all there.
We don’t always have 20-30 minutes for our dose of daily inspiration. But for those moments when we’re waiting in the doctor’s office, enjoying a coffee break, or just need a positive breath of fresh air, I think Artists in Action will be a wonderful fit.
Stay tuned for next week’s debut. I can’t wait to hear what you think.
