  • November, 2019, is the Enlightenment month for the Creative Pois-On Podcast. “Let there be light. And there was light.” This infamous quote from the Genesis expresses in a poetic and very visual way, an essentially creative process – to bring something to the light, out of the darkness. This is true of all creations: when you birth an idea, when you bring to the light a child, when you light up the stage of a theater and you give light to your creation for everybody to see it, when you stand up under the spotlight to pitch your business idea that you’ve been working so hard on. Guided by the voice and the enlightened mind of the host of the month of November, Award-Winning Writer, Author, Playwright and Novelist David James Parr – an exceptional creator of worlds – the Creative Directors Tommaso Cartia and Daniela Pavan try to go deep in the understanding of how important Light is in any creative process, but also how important and fundamental Darkness is, meaning everything that happens in the dark before an idea, a project is out in the light.

  • Welcome back to The Creative Pois-On Podcast! We’ve come to the Creative Interview episode of our first month of podcasting, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you our special guest. As you might know, our host for the month is Digital Strategist, Beauty & Fitness Model and Executive Producer of Melange 2019, Mara De Los Santos. This month we are talking about Transformation, and that’s why we thought of introducing our audience to the Melange project – an experimental concept promoting diversity and self-love in and through fashion, and fashion is all about the search for identity and how we continuously reinvent ourselves staying true to our own individuality and style. And so, it felt natural for Mara and us to look for our special guest in within the Melange family. So, we are proud and honored to introduce to you ... listen to the episode to know the name of our guest! You won't regret it, we promise. The interview is very powerful!

  • What is a Creative Being? And how does he/she interpret and embody the theme of transformation in this mass media culture we are living in? Artist Director of Creative Pois-On Tommaso Cartia and our host for the month of October, Digital Strategist, Beauty & Fitness Model and Executive Producer of Melange 2019, Mara De Los Santos, take us on a journey through the themes of creativity, imagination and transformation, starting from our childhood memories to making surprising connections with the so-called pop-pornographic aesthetic and phenomenons like Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus... in pure Creative Pois-On style.

    “You play in bed fantasizing to be a king, a magician, a knight, a castaway​, a beautiful mermaid…You play, but you live. You live dreams, you dream of lives. In between the inside and the outside, there’s a perfect harmony, a sublime equilibrium, but there is even more than the world that you absorb. Imagination. You have unimaginable power. Everything amplifies within yourself and you put it on out there, like on a stage. Images, colors, sounds, sensations, enlightenments, swell up inside of yourself, chasing each other. Correspondences. You play. And nobody is aware that you are not just playing, you are an extraordinary artist. All children are extraordinary artists”.

  • The Creative Briefing – Transformation – October 2019

    Abstract - Our host for the month of October, Digital Strategist, Beauty & Fitness Model and Executive Producer of Melange 2019, Mara De Los Santos introduces the topic of the month - Transformation - discussing it with the Artistic Directors of Creative Pois-On, Daniela Pavan and Tommaso Cartia, in a creative briefing anticipating the upcoming episodes: The Creative Bridge with Daniela, exploring the business side of the topic; The Creative Being with Tommaso, and The Creative Interview featuring a special guest who strongly embodies the Transformation theme.
    By Tommaso Cartia & Daniela Pavan

    “Why transformation, you may wonder. According to the dictionary, the meaning of the word transformation is ‘a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance. A metamorphosis during the life cycle of an animal.’ We are in October, the quintessential month of change and transformation… starting from the seasonal shift. We just ended summer, days are getting shorter and shorter, we will start shivering, we will have to change our wardrobe, the way we dress, technically if we were animals, well we are, we should go to hibernation… so it is indeed a transformative time. It’s a season full of changes, when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves shade in to red, yellow and then fall, transforming completely the landscape in front of our eyes…”

    As the discussion unfolds, the theme of Transformation finds its incarnations in a vast spectrum of subjects: from the archaic roots of Halloween, the folklore of the Venetian Carnival, and the current shifting trends of New York Fashion Week 2019, where the Melange Movement was a protagonist; to the transformation we could experience through the dramatic arts, with an exclusive look on the Sea Wall / A Life Broadway show with Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge.

  • OUR CREATIVE INTRODUCTION

    By Daniela Pavan & Tommaso Cartia


    Welcome to the Creative Pois-On Podcast. The very first creative impulse, the very first act of connection with our audience, the very first storyline cast out to interconnect the polka-dots of our creativity. The voice of our host for the month of October, Digital Strategist, Beauty & Fitness Model and Executive Producer of Melange 2019, Mara De Los Santos, breaks through the remote outer space of our world of ideas, to start reviving our thirst for creativity… relax, take a deep breath… ready, set, imagine…

    Truth is we never met but we imagine you. We imagine that you wake up in the morning, have breakfast or have no time for breakfast, and then get ready to work. We imagine you leaving your place and kissing your partner, or desiring one or enjoying the empowerment of being independent. We imagine you running to your workplace or comfortably sitting at your freelance desk at a lively co-working space. We imagine you checking your to-do list, attending meetings, making calls, having projects to finish and deadlines to meet, bosses to please or just yourself to please in the most bossy-ble way. We imagine you having clients to deal with, colleagues to connect with, share work and life with, share nothing at all and disagree with. We imagine you having a drink after work with those colleagues you share work and life with or nothing at all, or if it’s your lucky day, with your best friend who you haven’t seen in ages, who lives just a few train stops away from you. We imagine you getting back home and having dinner while binge watching your new favorite shows, or possibly sharing time with your loved one, desired one, or simply employing your independent master chef skills. We imagine you getting ready to go to bed, brushing your teeth, reading a book… is your brain shutting down or it is suddenly awakening? The question now is: are you happy with the day you just had, loving it for what it is, or you are wondering about all the things that could have been?

    Are we imagining it, or are you? Why are you doing the things you do? Who gave to your life the shape it has now? We imagine it was you, your imagination, the output of what you dreamed for yourself.

    Once upon a time, there was Imagination. We all remember it, right?
    It was part of our games when we were children, but then we grew up and forgot about it, along with the beauty of storytelling, and the wondrous power of connection that a story can channel. A connection between human beings, a connection between people and the experiences they are actually living in or just imagining, a connection to an original source, an ancestral creative magma where everything and anything can be possible and can come to life.

    Once upon a time, there was also Freedom. We all remember it, right?
    That Freedom that imagination and creativity allow us to experience and through which we can design or redesign our personal story, countless times, and in countless possible ways, like in a page full of dots where anything seems isolated, but suddenly it appears connected and so beautiful in its abstractions.

    With this podcast, we want to give all of this back to you and make imagination accessible again to all of us. Why? Because imagination leads to evolution and creativity leads to innovation.

    Our name, Creative Pois-On, is inspired by the illustrious artist YaYoi Kusama, who once said: “A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots can’t stay alone; like the communicative life of people, two or three polka-dots become movement…! Polka-dots are a way to infinity.” So, we named ourselves after the concept of polka dots, because life is made by people who are somehow connected, and people get ideas… but what is a single idea if it cannot be connected creatively to other ideas?

    This Podcast is an original idea by Daniela Pavan and Tommaso Cartia, with the collaboration of Costanza Biasibetti.

    Entrepreneur, Forbes Contributor, Design and Innovation Manager and Strategic Leader, Daniela was born and raised in Italy, and she is now based in NYC, that’s why she is blessed with both Italian artistic passion and NYC’s unique edge! Currently she covers the role of General Manager at The Ad Store NYC, creative agency part of an international network, and is also member of the M.A.C. Lab (Lab for Management of Arts and Culture) of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy. She is also Co-Founder of the Ca’ Foscari University Alumni– NYC Chapter and a collaborates with Ruler Art, Art Gallery based in NYC. A bridge builder between the world of Creatives and the Business environment, through her Forbes articles she explores creativity, innovation and storytelling.

    Italian Communications and Media Specialist, Journalist and Writer based in New York Tommaso Cartia, has over a decade of experience in the media, publishing and the entertainment business field. He is currently an Editor of the American version of Red Carpet Magazine as well as the Founder of his own editorial project, The Digital Poet. Tommaso is also a well-known Copywriter and a PR executive specifically within the Italian and the Italian American community in New York City. He is also the writer of the lyrical memoir “Reincarnazione Sentimentale”, published in Italy in 2014, and he has been working extensively as a bilingual Italian/English – journalist for different publications. His articles span a variety of topics including art, entertainment, lifestyle and food. He has interviewed celebrities of the caliber of Gina Lollobrigida, Michael Cunningham, Erica Jong, Valeria Golino, to name a few. He also worked as a producer for movies and as a digital marketer and copywriter for film companies and festivals.

    Creative Pois-On is going to be an unusual podcast, because Tommaso and Daniela will be not just creative directors but also guests… every month a different host, a different voice, will come to converse with them on a specific topic such as imagination, connection, transformation, enlightenment… to name a few. This is because Creative Pois-On strongly believes in the power of generating and sharing ideas to connect the dots and immerse ourselves in the multi-layered, multi-dimensional and overly digitalized world we live in.

    Each topic will be discussed from a creative, cultural and even business perspective in order to explore how much creativity could be crucial and essential in any fields, from the most corporate to the most artistic and independent ones.

    After a brief introduction that we call The Creative Briefing, Daniela will discuss the monthly topic by connecting the dots between the world of business and creativity, exploring its potentials and providing insights and ideas with her “The Creative Bridge” episode. While Tommaso will give voice to a more humanistic talk with interpolations with the world of entertainment, iconography and Pop Culture: “The Creative Being”.

    The final episode, The Creative Interview, will be graced by a special guest who embodies and successfully represents the treated topic.

    New York will be Creative Pois-On’s solid ground, a kaleidoscopic platform that interconnects the entire world with its variety and complexity in terms of dimensions, groups, ethnicities, businesses and artistic venues.

    We imagine you comfortably letting yourself go to the timeless power of your creativity.

    Let’s get started… ready, set, imagine!
