The Artist Pivot Podcast is a bi-weekly conversation highlighting pivots and life lessons from the perspective of artists, those who work in and around the arts, and arts educators. For those listening who don’t consider themselves artists you can pivot too! Everyone possesses the ability to do so, you just have to be reminded sometimes. All of our life lessons have taught us to be better pivoters and the mission is to share these life lessons to guide and inspire others.
