Asareh Ebrahimpour - The Artist's Way
Curiosity is a gateway to endless possibilities, and this week, we invite you to reflect on where your own curiosity will take you...
In this episode, we embark on a journey of choosing to connect with our inner voice in order to uncover our soul’s purpose through the story of Asareh Ebrahimpour. Asareh is a Persian interdisciplinary artist and an experienced art performer based in Dubai. She works across several modalities ranging from painting, sculpture, performance art, poetry and sound to challenge the traditional forms of visual art. She has performed and exhibited at the United Nations, Expo 2020, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), and the Oxford Festival of the Arts to name a few.
Having started her career as an interior designer, it was her curiosity and passion for Creative Expressive Art Therapy, Somatic Therapy and dance that led her to become the only artist in the GCC region conducting Therapeutic Expressive Movement Art workshops (Draw In Motion).
In a world where instant gratification reigns, and we are taught that “faking it till you make it” is the key to success, it can be confusing when trying to make your dreams a reality. But what if, instead of rushing towards success, we took a moment to truly understand what ignites our souls? What if our dreams could materialise through experimentation, moments of pause, and serendipitous encounters?
Asareh’s personal journey invites us to question what truly lights us up and makes room for the unknown.
Join us as we unravel the mysteries of listening to your soul's purpose and nourishing its deepest desires. Let's ignite our creative spirits and embark on a quest to uncover the hidden magic that resides within each of us.
