Ep 188: Confronting Colonisation. Artist Adelaide Damoah's story of exploring personal history
Ben Tallon's Creative Condition Podcast
What happens when the creative discipline we've trained for cannot express what we need to say?
London-based artist Adelaide Damoah takes us on a journey from racist bullying in a London primary school, through ill health and a dramatic career switch from pharmaceutical to art, all the way to Ghana where she fell in love with the exploration of her heritage through performance art and narrative.
Why is it important to feel, and find out what is right for our creativity at any given time, when it is all too easy to stick with what we've always done, staying in our comfort zone?
Adelaide's story is a superb showcase of the great things that can happen when we stay true to our heart and listen to the soul.
