A show about the creative process, mindfulness, and play.

Every 4th Monday of the month, from 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM

Playful Presence is a show about creativity, mindfulness, and play. Through  conversations with creatives, we learn about the thinking and feeling that goes into the creative process. 

We talk about wide ranging topics related to the creative process, and how everyone can be creative.

We invite you to try some short creativity and mindfulness exercises too. You'll also hear some music that complements the discussion.
