Week 0 – Podcast interview 01.06.2020
Rachel Picken of the podcast ‘Operating at 80% awesome’ contacted me a couple of weeks ago , during the break between modules, to ask if I would come onto the show and record a podcast discussing home educating, my MA project on alternative education, and how our family was coping with home educating during covid, and if I had an tips for other home educators.
The podcast episode entitle ‘ Episode 4, how to be an Awesome Home Educator’ can be found here https://open.spotify.com/episode/6GJvysKc5H7ALzOKA1oJpb . I surprised myself, and found that I actually really enjoyed recording this podcast, it was just like sitting down and having a chat with someone , really informally over a cup of tea, which is exactly what I want my images to feel like to people within the home educating, and alternatively educating community. Finding the balance between it being accessible, and ‘homely’ to those within the community, whilst being serious to those interested in education, whilst being ‘high end’ enough to be viewed by the art community, is a challenge I am finding really exciting, and the process of this I am finding very fulfilling.
At the moment, I feel like I am doing great with this balance, but there is always more and more to learn, and discover moving forward, this is something I am really looking forward to this module.
