this is the art life.
What if art were less about goals and more about living? The Art Life is a weekly podcast and emerging philosophy exploring what it means to be an artist.
Each episode questions what art has to do with life: from nature to notebooks, from happiness to home renovations.
Your hosts are actress Grace Gordon and essayist Xandra Robinson-Burns. They share stories of how art weaves meaning into all that we do. 'Being an artist' can be a job, but also an identity, a lifestyle, and a reminder to spend time away from screens.
In conversation, The Art Life redefines ‘art’ as expansive, inclusive, and grounding.
This show is for everyone because everyone can be an artist. Tune in every Friday for art chats and interviews. We hope you’re inspired to adopt an art life of your own.
