Episode 42: Art and Parenting at Intersectional Identities

In by Cindy Brandt

Show Description

Every child is creative. But so often we drive creativity out of children, whether it’s religious fundamentalism, market forces, or the way institutional schooling is structured, we don’t give children permission to be who they are and let them create accordingly. Adrienne Nieves, community abstract artist, and I talk about art and parenting and the intersection of various oppressions in today’s rich episode. You will learn perspectives and stories you haven’t heard before. Addye’s friendly and unflinchingly honest stories are disarming and challenging at the same time. Don’t miss this conversation!
