#HFGather: Mitali Perkins and Sarah Aronson on Art, Creativity and Vulnerability

May 6, 2020 | HFGather, Inspiration

We were thrilled to have Mitali Perkins join host Sarah Aronson for a writer chat today! They began by talking about process vs. product, and went on to do a Q&A and to share some inspiring thoughts:

  • Art can really serve people who are suffering
  • Art matters even more deeply during this time
  • Getting away from perfect can be a lifetime goal
  • Vulnerability is not the thing to fear, but to pursue
  • Times of trial and suffering have refined art
  • Boredom is an underrated ingredient to creativity
