OT, Artist & 1/3 of Charismatic Megafauna

Sep 16, 2020, 05:00 AM
Occupational Therapist, artist and 1/3 of the electro-punk band, Charismatic Megafauna - this episode we are joined by the fabulous Georgia Twigg.

Georgia discusses the benefits of working across different industries (acknowledging it can also be exhausting), a DIY approach to whatever they focus on and applying 'doing, being, becoming' to areas of their life that pushes them outside their comfort zone. A great example - deciding to learn the drums whilst performing to audiences. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

They also share combing their skills as an artist with their knowledge of physical and mental well-being to form a workshop focusing on staying positive and engaged in the face of disagreement. You can listen to a version of the workshop commissioned by โ€˜Keep it Complexโ€™ titled: โ€™How to talk to people you disagree with.โ€™ and also purchase an accompanying zine here:

It is super practical and provides a lot of useful information on managing your own health and wellbeing in confronting situations - such as campaigning or protesting (or at Christmas family dinners!).

You can also listen and purchase Charismatic Megafauna's music here:

Georgia is open about their experiences and delivers so much wisdom about self-journey, creative expression and social justice - some real gems to mull over. ๐Ÿ’Ž

A big thank you to all of Charismatic Megafauna of allowing us to use their music on this episode. ๐Ÿงก
