In your opinion, is the artist community in Berlin structured to support conversations within the community about wellness and inclusivity?
“As I am still relatively new to Berlin, I am still getting to know the artist community in Berlin but from what I can tell it is an art scene that is very experimental and inclusive in terms of diversity, wellness and gender. I certainly feel that I would have the freedom to pursue my art practice and what I hope to achieve in such an open setting. Talking with people in the creative industry has always been a great way of motivating myself to do things by learning and to find out new interests. Recently I took part in a studio visit with students at School of the Arts Institute Chicago (SAIC) and this was a great opportunity to be inspired by the variety of work the students are creating – this certainly pushes me to keep creating my own work too.”
