Subjects explored include how inspiration can take many forms, the significance of multidisciplinary arts in today’s world, and how making mistakes in art can often lead to the opening of many new doors.

Kid Koala will discuss how storytelling has remained at the core of his work from his early DIY recordings in music to larger productions, ranging from film scores, animation, theatre, and video games to special touring events. The class will include live demonstrations of his turntable skills as well as selections of photos and video clips from numerous live events and film projects. Other topics include escaping writers’ block, the benefits of making mistakes, how to build a team of artists, and the beauty of collaboration. Discussion and debate are highly recommended.
