It’s a big word made of only seven letters. From the youngest age, we’re taught to honor our promises to others and see them through to the end. No matter what. But, what about the promises we make to ourselves?
At the February 2021 gathering of CreativeMornings/Charlotte, artist, activist and Costa Rican native Irisol Gonzalez spoke about the global theme of promise. After immigrating to the United States at just 10 years old, Gonzalez made a promise to herself that she would become a full-time artist.
Today, she’s a staple community member among Charlotte artists.
In this edition of CreativeMornings/Rewind, Head Biscuit Baker Tim Miner talks to Gonzalez about her personal promises and how she’s working with younger creatives and communities in Charlotte and abroad.
