Competing Spectacles by Tony Reinke, Free for CAPC Members
Reinke wants to help readers not be manipulated and enthralled by the spectacles of our media age. Instead, he shows that we see the greatest spectacle of all in the Cross.
Pursuing the creative life in the digital age offers plenty of new opportunities and its fair share of challenges. The ease with which digital platforms allow us to reach our audience and share our work breaks down entry barriers that used to keep creators and makers isolated and unnoticed. But that easy access goes both ways—artists are now forced to install security measures for personal safety and carve out quiet spaces for proper development of their craft.
In this episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson wrap up The Creative Process series with a discussion about the tensions that must be acknowledged as part of the creative life. Is it possible to achieve a level of success that eliminates the creative struggle? What role does stewardship play in giving your creative life the attention it needs to thrive? How does an artist’s personal growth affect the type of creative work pursued? Conversation covers everything from personal reflections to Taylor Swift’s struggle to sing her own songs to the future of Persuasion. Listen in for dialogue on topics like these as we wrap up our series on the creative process, then continue the conversation on Twitter @PersuasionCAPC or in the CAPC members-only community on Facebook.
