Arts & Emotions

with Frances and guests

I’m in the business of thinking & moving; but emotions affect both - they’re such a fundamental part of cognition.  Since the dawn of man, the arts have been where we engage with & process our feelings.
I wanted to learn more about different kinds of art; what makes them popular, & how they benefit our emotional health.

Life wouldn't be much of a life without the arts.  Painting, poetry, music, movies, dance, design; they all express what it is to be human and to feel.  We need them to bring us together, tell our stories, escape or find outlet for our emotions.   When the pandemic robbed us of so much access to live arts, their crucial importance for our health had never been clearer...

I wanted to talk to artists, learn more about their creative passions, and reconnect with art in this way. My guests dig into skills and processes,  discuss the emotional side of things, tell stories and offer suggestions to explore. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I’m loving making them.
