Coming Soon: the WANA project
Stay tuned for this exciting new platform for artists that will feature FdlM in a short film and podcast guest appearance. The WANA project (where awareness nourishes artistry) aims to protect and cultivate artists’ creativity during a distracted era. Founder Marissa Boisvert,will be taking the site live this summer and has teamed up with artist/filmmaker Emily Alexander to produce short films as resources for the creative community to find tools they need to do what they love, and be well doing it. "Creating the environment to help us get out of our heads and into our experiences, the WANA project podcast addresses and examines the natural ebb and flow of the creative process, as well as the obstacles in the lives of both emerging and established artists. Marissa weaves in ways to protect and cultivate artistry, regardless of the circumstance. Featured guests will have a raw conservation around their realities and have the opportunity to share their latest works, collaborations and projects." Marissa Boisvert
