    Moushumi Ghose on the Importance of Creating Art You Feel Passionate About

    Moushumi Ghose is a sex educator, therapist, music maker, and writer. She has a web series called The Sex Talk Series. She also made a documentary called Temples and Brothels, which uncovered the roots of our nation’s sexual ideals and the fabric and the sexual identity of our society as a whole. Her band Ghosha is releasing their Quarantine tunes on ghosha.bandcamp.com, and they are dedicating all proceeds from their Bandcamp right now to the NAACP to fight racism. We discuss so many things, including the good old rock’n’roll days, weird crushes, persevering as an artist even if commercial success is elusive, how we’ve changed (and become better) as we’ve gotten older, and the difference in our quality of life since we left LA and moved to smaller places.

    Key Takeaways

    • Being an artist isn’t necessarily about commercial success. It’s about creating art that you feel passionate about and that feels important to put into the world.
    • You need money to create art. Find a way to make enough money so that you can create.
    • There is no final destination when it comes to creating art, so do what you like and just keep doing it. There is no end goal. You never ‘make it’…even if you do make it 🙂
    • We get better every year.
