Embark: Creators and Innovators

To create one’s world in any of the arts takes courage.
-Georgia O’Keeffe.

There’s a playful artist who lives in each of us. We often deny their existence and instead, listen to that killjoy, self-editing perfectionist who stomps on our ideas and puts our imagination in a time out. Our minds become prisons of fear and self-doubt. Our idea stinks. We’ll look ridiculous. Somebody else has already thought of it. We’ll just fail anyway. We reject ourselves before anyone else can, we figure.

Not taking a risk may be the riskiest thing we can do.

Time to break free. Dangle upside down on life’s jungle gym, cannonball into the pool, let that freak flag fly. Let’s renew that sense of joy – have fun – with a little help from my friends.

Embark brings you conversations with audacious visual artists, writers, actors, comics, musicians and intrepid Innovators from medicine, technology, agriculture, robotics and beyond.

It’s my privilege to share their stories to inspire, connect with you and often make you laugh.

Meet us at the crossroads of art and science.

Let’s Embark.
