About Local Story Space

Local Story Space is all about creating a space for women’s creativity stories by bringing words, pictures and sound together. I visit creative women in their creative spaces and chat about their creative projects. I started this blog out of a desire to understand my own creativity by asking other women how they nurture their own.

I write about art, design and culture with a particular focus on the ways that women make time and space for creativity.

This space is about visibility for women’s stories and work. The podcast means that women can tell their stories in their own voices. This space is also about creating a legacy for women and girls so that, “if you can see it, you can be it.” This space is about cheering each other on. It is a supportive and creative space for all women.

About Jenni Mazaraki

mebandwlighterI was accepted into the BA in Fine Art on my painting folio and finished the degree as a sculptor. I also have a BA in Visual Communication and a Master’s degree in Art Therapy. Art feels like my language. I have a thing for piles of dirt and grand manicured hedges. When I draw I feel most like myself and wonder what makes other creative women feel most like themselves. You can read more about me here.
