Anne Basting of TimeSlips and and Director of UWM's Center for 21st Century Studies

2/7/2024
If you have ever struggled to connect with someone you love, this episode is for you. Sometimes we just need to look at things from a different perspective. This is exactly what this week’s guest - MacArthur Genius, UWM Professor, and founder of the non-profit, Timeslips - Anne Basting discovered when she began working with those living with dementia. Instead of counting on memory, Anne uses her ‘beautiful questions’ to encourage creativity and imagination in our interactions with our elders, but really, we these tools are for anyone. At their root is JOY, acceptance and a dignity that says “I see you ... you matter.” And isn’t that what this world needs right now? You don’t want to miss this one. Listen as we talk about … THE dreamiest job description EVER: sparking people’s belief in themselves and in their own creativity and then inviting them to use it to bridge and build. How to turn the relationship of care-giver/receiver on its side, so the power dynamic isn’t top a top down intervention but rather a relationship of dignified equals The concept of JOY as a framework, and how she brings that with her, sometimes calling it her “silver lining addiction.” How we’ve separated healthcare & social care from the arts & culture in this country and how she thinks we’re getting close to meaningful (re)integration, which is exactly what we need, and what the research shows is beneficial.And how working with older adults is more joyful than people think! The new tagline for Milwaukee … “Two phone calls from yes.” Locals and Links we love! Anne’s website TimeSlips EMC2 Project Creative Care (the book!) Creative Care Imaginations Kit (for order!)

Julia Taylor, Artist and Change Maker and Visionary

1/31/2024
Look up mover, shaker, connector, change agent in the dictionary and you are SURE to find this week’s guest, Julia Taylor. Past President of both the Greater Milwaukee Committee as well as the YWCA of Greater Milwaukee, Julia is a dream MAKER in the Cream City. She is also a consummate connector of people and builder of relationships across the city getting things done at the “speed of trust,” which we both agree is exactly the right speed! Listen as we talk about … The unexpected career trajectory of a serious CHANGE MAKER because she said YES! A gem of advice for young leaders today.An important lesson she learned from a failure, and how she pulled herself out of a funk after a legislative loss she’d spent years working toward. So many things can happen around a dinner table, hear how Julie hosts and why she prefers the Jeffersonian Model of conversation. How and why to stay connected to creativity, even if you don’t consider yourself an artist (though NEWSFLASH: we are ALL creative). Locals and Links we love!

Symphony Swan of THE CR8TV HOUSE

1/24/2024
You’ve probably noticed if you’ve been following us for some time, that we have a slight bias for women who are working hard to make Milwaukee a better place for EVERYONE. We love a good DIY story, and this week’s guest Symphony Swan is literally building her dream from the ground up. Or should we say, giving her dream a makeover. Voted Milwaukeean of the Year by The Shepherd Express, Symphony is turning her childhood home into The Cr8TV House, a creative gallery and workspace for black and brown and other marginalized artists to nurture their talents and artistry to help solve complex problems. (You’ll hear what that means in the episode). This is about a space, but it’s a conversation about so much more: family, community, inclusion and belonging, and the role of art in our society to shape the future where there is a (CR8TV) space at the table for everyone. Listen as we talk about … How the death of her mother and father in quick succession changed her world entirely and threw her headlong into her dream of owning a creative space. Her word of the year, ‘courage’ and why she’s doing things that scare herAnd why she believes in transparency and showing people what’s happening behind the scenes (even if it’s messy and beautifully complex). The important lesson she learned about communication, forgiveness and relationships with the passing of her father. Locals and Links we love!

Sevan Arabajian-Ries of Mother Lion

1/17/2024
In need of a bit of respite and rest to reflect on those resolutions (how's that for alliteration?) You’ll definitely want to tune into today’s episode with Sevan Arabajian-Ries of Mother Lion. Mother Lion is a special place in Bayview open for hosting workshops, retreats, overnights, and other intimate gatherings. It was created with the deep intention of both nurturing and nourishing its guests. Get a glimpse into this sacred space and see if it might be a good fit for your next gathering (or even the gift you might give yourself this season). Listen as we talk about … How they created this space specifically to “nourish people who nourish people” (hey, did we just come up with their tagline or what?) How they intentionally invite people to share their sacred space based on shared values and humanity. How dreams take time, patience, and trust. How an early (early!) interaction with the Dalai Lama may just have shifted the direction of Sevan’s life path. Also, learn about her work as a Threshold Doula. And if you’ve been hearing a lot about ‘shadow work’ lately, we’ve got an explanation for you! Locals and Links we love!
