Welcome to the Creative Wire

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

– Vincent Van Gogh

For those who create, art is much more than just a final product.

  • It is an ongoing process of exploration, growth and discovery.
  • It is a reflection of our lived experiences, our emotions and our vulnerabilities.
  • It is a form of empathy, understanding and connection with others.

Welcome to the Creative Wire, a blog from the Peabody LAUNCHPad office, where we will explore the ways that Peabody’s talented and hardworking community of artists harness their creativity, find inspiration, and support one another to make an impact in the world. We’ll go beyond that final event, project, or program to uncover the behind-the-scenes process and the spark that brought it to life. All content will be designed and written from the creative perspective of fellow artists – primarily student contributors.

Visit the Creative Wire homepage for monthly posts! Our next post, written by Arindam Jurakhan, will cover the 15th anniversary of Peabody’s Junior Bach program. You can also sign up for our mailing list to receive regular updates on new content.
