TOP_SPEAK

Rude, but true.

I’ve had the great pleasure of speaking to many groups of amazing people – from high school students to the coffee-fueled crowd at Creative Mornings to the creative geniuses at PIXAR. I’ve given keynote addresses at conferences like Alt Summit, done Q&A’s, spoken on panels, taught workshops, signed a lot of books, and various combinations of all of the above. I truly could (and have) talked about finding inspiration, getting through blocks, and squashing self-doubt, until the wee hours of the morning.

I love sharing everything I’ve learned, and passing on the aha moments that I’ve experienced in the last few years… but I have to admit, what interests me most are the discussions that happen after I stop talking. The me-too stories I’m told after every single event – some funny, some heartbreaking – are the most amazing gifts I’ve ever been given. Those stories, which have often been kept quiet for years, are what connect us, and remind us that none of us are alone in this great big creative journey called life. After each event I grab the closest notebook, scribble down those me-too stories, and incorporate them into the next talk as absolute proof that we’re all in this together.

    Hi Danielle!

    I’m wondering about the possibility of sponsoring one of your podcasts for stARTup Art Fair’s LA edition this January 29-31.

    Is that a possibility?

  8. the jealous curator /// 11.30.2016 /// 5:28pm

    hi danielle – yes, that sounds great! shoot me an email and we can figure it out : contact@thejealouscurator.com

  9. Susan Lasch Krevitt /// 01.05.2017 /// 12:45pm

    Looking forward to meeting you in L.A.! just learned of your site and have already subscribed to the podcast. thanks for bringing artists and eyes together!

  10. the jealous curator /// 01.05.2017 /// 5:16pm

    thanks susan! see you in LA : )

    Hi Danielle,

    I discovered your creation and love the initial premise behind it, and how you’ve used that toxic moment of comparison and turned it into a thing of joy and abundance. I’ve come across yourself on a couple of blogs/podcasts and love how you have used that process to talk about the self doubt and challenges we all face as creative souls

    I’m excited to let you know that I’m putting together an online retreat where 21 facilitators will run mini workshops. It’s called the Mindfully Alive Retreat: Tame the voices in your head, creatively live in the moment and find peace in frantic world. I want the folks who attend to not only have information but an experience of becoming more aligned with who they are. I would be honoured if you would consider being featured in it.

    I long to see people become who they were created to be which starts with that most important relationship we have with ourselves and then the world around us. As you know the power of being in the moment is so important and yet so many of us miss it, partly because we make it too complicated. That is why I’m putting together workshops from mediation to art journaling, photography to mindfully getting to sleep. I want to use this retreat to provide the experience that folks can change their lives and overcome their stress.

    I believe your expertise would be a perfect fit and I know your story would help inspire this audience.

    I plan to use Zoom to prerecord all the videos to make it easy on your schedule. The interviews will go live on 6 March 2017.

    Would you consider being interviewed?

    If so when is the best date/time to jump on the phone to chat further? I have an online calendar which may be more helpful for you to use at http://juliemerrett.com/MAR

    Thank you in advance,

    Julie

    Hi Danielle, I love your site and the concept behind it!

    Looking forward to your book signing at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, where I’m based. Don’t you think the jealous curator and the art ambassador need to meet?

    See ya soon!

  13. the jealous curator /// 05.04.2017 /// 6:22am

    ha! yes indeed they do : )

  14. Susan Paladino /// 01.06.2018 /// 6:08pm

    Look forward to listening. Good way to start 2018.

    Hi Danielle- you mentioned on your recent podcast that you are considering invitations to speak on your upcoming book tour. I am in NW Connecticut and associated with NW Arts Counsel in Torrington Ct, as well as Five Points Gallery, also in Torrington. I am not a current member but have been associated with Whiting Mills Artists Studios in Winsted, CT. Would you be interested in visiting this area on your Book Tour? If NW CT is too far off the beaten path for you, I also have several connections in Fairfield County, CT (about an hour or so from NYC. If you are visiting northeastern US, we would love to have you. I’d be happy to follow up with a gallery, art guild or bookstore in Litchfield or Fairfield County to get you out this way. Please let me know if this would fit in your itinerary and an approximate date and I’ll see what I can do! Best, Melissa McCobb Hubbell (you can email me directly at mmh@melissamccobbhubbell if you’d like.)
