The Creative Independent is a resource of emotional and practical guidance for creative people. Our goal is to educate, inspire, and grow the community of people who create or dream of creating.
Everything you read on The Creative Independent will come from artists and creators. This space is reserved for their perspective. The Creative Independent is ad-free and backed by Kickstarter, PBC.
Each weekday we will publish one interview or essay by an artist—including musicians, authors, filmmakers, dancers, designers, and others. Conversations will explore themes like collaboration, creative beginnings, the creative process, failure, triumph, fear and anxiety, and bouncing back. Each artist will also share some personal recommendations—resources that are important for contextualizing their work, good tools for people who also make things, or simply things they enjoy.
