What does it mean to be creative?

Dr. Adrianne: To have the ability, resources, and support to manifest or produce an idea that is unique and inspires others.

What one piece of advice/wisdom/encouragement/insight would you give to Black women about navigating their own creative process? 

Dr. Adrianne: Please don’t be discouraged by the naysayers. Your tribe exists; they understand you deeply and want to connect with you… Please leave space in your day, week, month to be uninhibited – to imagine freely… Take notes – write them down or record them… Create what YOU love, not what you THINK someone else will love. 

What is your one takeaway after reading Adrianne’s take on creativity? Share below!
