Why artists are poor?
I have received quite a few talk requests here on Qoorio from young people aspiring to create.
One of the most pressing question for young creative is the managment of time, since most juggle between jobs and projects trying to survive and practise art at the same time.
There is no easy answer to this question as we are products of our society, shaped by shared values, public policies and peer pressure.
This is an interesting interview exploring the subject of art funding, poverty among creators and public notion on what is good art.
I just got a sudden depression/anxiety attack recently, to point it got me thinking to myself: "why am I limiting myself for family?". That very question sparks my whole identity, as a son, a brother, and the boy who dreams big, but have to keep low profile.
My question to you: what made you feel you are free from shackles of family? How, and why?
If I was a leader of a company, there is something I would definitely do this for my company, for my employees, and definitely for my office.
Please tell me, that there are leaders on this platform who THINK IT CAN REALLY GIVE A POSITIVE RESULT FOR YOUR GOAL?
All companies have a goal. And we attain goals quicker if we visualize them well.
Thus, I would ask a painter to paint this GOAL on a large CANVAS, to be placed in the main spot of the office.
I would invite all the employees to take part and create this artwork together.
Then, I would ask to discuss:
What does inspire us to wake up each morning and to come to work together?
Where do we want to be?
What do we want to improve in our daily work?
And if my employees say “money”, we would absolutely find a way to show money on this artwork, or maybe good atmosphere, or maybe innovations that our organization is searching for, or maybe that swimming pool in the office which some employees are dreaming of, or maybe a private airport they would like to have next to the office, or maybe a daily sunshine in the office.
Every single idea would be painted on this canvas in a direct or figurative way.
To achieve that, there should be a big presentation meeting where the artist could carefully listen to all of the ideas and discuss together how he or she can translate all those IDEAS into PICTURES.
Once the final piece of art or maybe several pieces are hanged in the main office place and everybody may have a look at the SHARED DREAM every single day it will work on the collective unconscious and conscious level.
That’s how IDEAS start to become REAL.
First of all, we should know them and should anticipate them
Secondly, discuss them
Thirdly, select the best ones
Then - imagine them very clearly – that’s the job of the canvas
It is so easy, if that imagination work is done even by your engineers, even your secretory, even your freelancers – the MORE PEOPLE IMAGINE THE SAME THINGS - THE MORE EASY TO ACHIEVE THESE THINGS !!!
And I am not even talking about how this canvas can be useful for your marketing strategy !!!
Or it could be a playful way to illustrate your company’s story!
It’s such a simple, powerful and beautiful way to transform goals into reality.
And what about employees, would you like to participate in this kind of activity at your actual job? Or maybe for your own personal purpose?
“Find an ARTWORK for your GOAL ” is available for everyone.
To be honest this is my favorite subject
People are increasingly switching their careers to the IT field, especially programming. 💻
Oftentimes, they cannot answer why they want to learn how to code, except for financial motivations.
Because the question is often asked during job interviews, it is important to have a good answer. What can you do about it?
In my professional experience, the royal road to the IT field is immersing yourself in a disciplined process of research, support, and planning.💡
This includes taking online courses (e.g. Coursera, Udemy, edX), finding a mentor (e.g. Women Go Tech, idialogue), and getting proper career coaching.
An industry-informed coach will help you deal with your fears, collect your thoughts around your values, goals, and motivations, as well as come up with a reasonable career plan.
After that, you will be able to provide solid reasons why you want to join the IT field as well as explain your vision and plan for the future. ☀️
