For young people Creative Futures Meet Sophia My practice revolves around creating a story through words, whether that be poetry, short stories, songs or interviews. I aim to bring social and cultural themes to life through my words. Name: Sophia Harari Age: 21 Art form: Writer/Creator Why did you apply for creative futures? I applied to creative futures to give myself an opportunity to immerse my whole being in art and explore my practice in a more interdisciplinary way. Tell us about the work you are currently making. I’m working on telling the story of creative identity and exploring culture’s relationship to creativity. I want to begin to understand what enhances and limits self-expression and how to recognise and communicate with these forces. What topics would you like to explore and why? I want to explore oral histories, visual expression, relationships, post-colonial identity, creativity and capitalism and how all of these make up my personal identity. What are you most excited to do on creative futures? Working with people that can help me in my personal and artistic development. Where do you see yourself at the end of the programme? I don’t know where I see myself at the end of the programme. What I hope is that I will be a more well-rounded creative, who understands what I want to get and give from my art. How can we help?
