Freedom presents


Small Talks is a series of conversations and insights from the creative minds of artists, producers, musicians, performers, doers and those who work with them from around the world. Discussing and sharing thoughts and opinions on their craft, their processes and creativity. Split into bitesized chunks each episode is scored with music, soundscapes and sampled sounds for you to enjoy as a whole or just in quick 5 minute gaps. We guess it's a podcast but we don't really know what a podcast is so lets just call it a series of conversations. Small Talks.

Episode 1 - New Beginnings


How do you know when something is finished? This is just one question posed to artists and creatives who give personal thoughts and views on when art is ready to be made public.
