In episode 118, I spoke with Courn Ahn (she/her). Courn is a multidisciplinary designer, illustrator, and freelance creative based in Portland, Oregon. Her direct experience as a Korean American has largely shaped her career philosophy, serving as inspiration for the social justice advocacy present in her creative work. Through her freelance studio, she aims to provide accessible design services for small BIPOC business-owners and partner with organisations working directly in the equity space as a force for good. In recent years, Courn has found purpose in using art as a tool for activism, sharing weekly posts navigating intersectional topics through her Instagram account, @courtneyahndesign.

In modern life, in the word failure gets a bad reputation, we talk about three areas where she’s learned through “failure” which includes:

  • Work
  • Personal relationships
  • Self-care

Art is important for culture, it is one of the areas where it holds a mirror back to us as people, we talk about how:

  • Art is a tool for her creativity
  • Art is a tool for expressing her emotions/making your voice heard
  • Art is a tool for making change/community power
