Share Your Tips For Staying Creative – And Calm 12

We’ve made a change to the Art&Seek calendar that airs on KERA FM and KXT FM.

Nilufer Arsala, our calendar host, will chat with with folks who have a tip on things to do at home – bingeworthy Netflix series, opportunities for virtual events, maybe even a great recipe, craft project or meditation app.

To kick things off, I told Nilufer about a really cute thing I saw on Facebook over the weekend: The Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Erin Hannigan made a video of herself playing oboe at home – and the baleful response from her dog.

She posted it to Facebook and started a thread, encouraging her DSO colleagues to do the same. Many of their pets don’t seem to appreciate the caliber of their owner’s talent.


“We at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra miss performing with each other and for YOU during this time of social distancing, so we’ve found a way to continue our art,” Erin wrote.

You can see all the musicians who played along on Erin’s Facebook page  (The post is public.)

What are you doing to stay creative – and have some fun – at home? We’ll air a different tip every day on KERA FM, and post it here on Art&Seek. So leave us a comment, tell us on Facebook or tweet @artandseek.
