Self Portrait, October 2020

Rishi Sunak said that creatives struggling to find opportunities (hi there!) should retrain so I took the National Retraining Scheme careers quiz. The questions were impersonal and the results were pretty silly. This quiz has no way of indicating who I am, what my skills are, what I care about. Here it is paired with a self portrait that goes a little way to help me understand these things.

This is who I am. I have to create. We shouldn’t live in a world where making the best contribution to society we can depends on the whims of the economy.
