Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when you let the creative juices flow. 

Have you ever experienced a flow state when using music or visual arts as a creative outlet? Or maybe you’ve been inspired by someone else’s work?

If you like music and art, stick around, because today’s episode is a roundtable discussion where we talk about all things creativity, facilitated by community moderator Danielle Terrell, and featuring Autistic Self-Advocates Andrew Bennett, Stephanie De Kremer, and Christina Kaspersen, as wells as fellow members of our online Global Autism Community, Melissa Badertscher and Tj Larum. 

Among other things, we discuss: 

  • How creative projects can enrich lives

  • Different outlets for creativity

  • Interpretation vs improvisation

  • Using creativity to accentuate autistic strengths and develop areas of need

  • Challenges of self-promotion

  • How to overcome imposter syndrome when showcasing work in front of others
