BONUS: COVID is Good for Creators with Lucas Spivey, Culture Hustlers

The Creative Impostor

"Whenever there's a big shift in the world, those who have the most embedded power stand to lose the most. And those who have had little power, like small businesses, artists... they have an opportunity to seize that moment, pivot quickly in a way that most of these large institutions can't and take advantage of the new landscape.” ~Lucas Spivey By listener request, I am brining you this bonus episode with Lucas Spivey, founder of Culture Hustlers, to talk about how COVID is good for creators. What? Yeah... trust me... Culture Hustlers is a business school for creators made by creators. It's also an educational media company, which produces podcasts, documentaries, photo essays, all telling the story of how artists, designers, performers, writers, and makers can not only make art, but they can make a business. Culture Hustlers has a cohort of different creators all over the world from 35 States and five countries so far who are creative people working together to help each other to build a business model. Lucas and I had about 20 minutes to catch up online to chat about challenges and opportunities for creatives right now just before the launch of the NEW COHORT assembling for September 2020. Applications are due Monday Aug 3rd so don't delay! Work study is available (Lucas believes that everyone deserves access to this program!)  We promised you a ton of resources and treats in this episode's show notes.

093: Stop making stuff that nobody wants with Lucas Spivey, Culture Hustlers

The Creative Impostor

Episode 093. "If you think you need to move to a city to access the creative buzz, I think you're looking at the situation through the wrong lens... Geographically there's a revolution happening like across the world... and it's happening in every city every basement, like every street corner, every crusty little studio. It's a global revolution that's happening right now." ~Lucas Spivey Are you currently stuck inside, furiously learning the steps to the coronavirus shuffle? Join the club. The world-wide lockdown is forcing freelancers and creatives to pivot on regularly-scheduled content or scrap their trusty playbook altogether.  So, what does a Creative Impostor do when the entire planet is forced into time out?  She goes for a spin* in a souped-up, decommissioned ambulance with Lucas Spivey of Culture Hustlers and records a podcast about the future of art and, more importantly, getting paid for said art. *Full disclosure: She did NOT go for a spin during the quarantine! This episode was recorded about a year ago (yes, I know!) But the message, the spirit, the HOPE is full-on what creatives need to hear right now; a feel-good episode for when things don’t feel so good. Lucas is a BFA MBA who’s traveled to all 50 states (yes, even Hawaii) in his mobile incubator, capturing wisdom and stories from the country’s hardworking, often unsung, creators. It’s life-on-the-road as PhD. Seriously, he scrapped the formal experience of post-graduate school for a sometimes-sleeps-in-a-van existence. That multifunction studio on wheels van life coupled with his traditional educational forms the foundation for his virtual coaching program.  So why this episode and why now? Because Lucas’s enthusiasm for creators and the creative process is contagious (too soon in the midst of a pandemic?)And, his key pieces of advice have the power to shift the way you do and deliver your art.  That may be a hard sell when we’ve been told to practice social distancing, when scoring a roll of toilet paper and coordinating a family check-in call are the new self-care rituals. But the shelter in place orders will eventually lift. When it does, maybe you’ll have found fresh inspiration and designed a new normal way of creating.

Lucas Spivey: How to Make Art and Make A Living- Culture Hustlers - BFA/MBA

I Like Your Work: Conversations with Artists, Curators & Collectors

Lucas Spivey has traveled to all 50 states to build a business school for creators. Born in MN, raised in rural WI, AK, SC, and GA, and living between WA and MA, he’s moved almost every year of his life. In 2016, he scrapped his Ph.D. plans and built the Mobile Incubator - a recording studio inside a ‘57 camper towed by a ‘73 ambulance. He has sat down with thousands of artists, performers, writers, designers, makers, and other entrepreneurs in every state. Their hard-fought wisdom inspired him to forget a Ph.D. and instead found the collaborative school Culture Hustlers.   Culture Hustlers is a 12-month cohort that builds a creative business model. In just 4 - 8 hours a month we build one part of a business thru podcasts, documentaries, webinars, one on one coaching, and more.   Lucas is also the founder of the experimental art center 17 Cox. Lucas received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Art & Art History, and his MBA in Finance and Accounting. Since 2010, Lucas has pioneered a 100% experiential learning model for thousands of individual creators. He develops educational programs for higher ed including Harvard University, Ringling College of Art & Design, and MIT. Lucas also produces and hosts podcasts, documentaries and photo essays on cultural entrepreneurship for city governments, business incubators, and service organizations like Arts & Business Council, ArtPrize, Artists Thrive, and Artist Inc.   TOPICS COVERED: -Navigating Higher Ed -BFAs, MBAs, and PhDs -Starting a Bussiness -Why he travels and learned from creatives all over the US -Why he started Culture Hustlers -The most important lesson in Culture Hustlers -Stand out faculty he has worked with and the lessons they have taught -Number one block he sees in artists -Thinking Creatively/Creative Problem Solving -Books that have inspired him to live a creative life -Goal Setting and much more!   RESOURCES: I Like Your Work Podcast Studio Planner Instagram Submit Work Online Exhibition-Drowned Neon Rose Observations on Applying to Juried ShowsCulture Hustlers Lucas Spivey Website 17 Cox Lucas Spivey Instagram Culture Hustlers Insta Culture Hustlers YouTube Culture Hustlers Podcast

Ep. #220: Lucas Spivey of the Mobile Incubator and Culture Hustlers podcast

The Conversation Art Podcast

Lucas Spivey of the roving projects Mobile Incubator and Culture Hustlers talks about: His origin story of getting into art education, including wanting to fix an inadequate system; how over a year and a half he drove over 20,000 miles and met with over 2000 artists in 42 states, hearing people’s stories and eventually conducting podcasts and call-in shows; the Santa Fe-based art collective Meow Wolf; the importance of cultivating 1000 true fans (as written by Kevin Kelly), and how he sees the listeners of his podcast as side hustlers, not the artist who’s already made it; his advice about what an artist should do in certain situations, including whether to make work that’s experimental vs. marketable, and what their plan should be if they’re working multiple part-time jobs but really just want to paint.
