Our art is personal so sometimes receiving feedback can feel overwhelming. In this episode, Jeffrey and Joseph talk about how to give and receive comments beyond “it was good,” or “it was bad.” They outline four steps to help get and give useful responses: give permission, set specific parameters, have a limit, and evaluate what was helpful.
Consume: Read up on Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process
Create: Write (and record if you’re a podcaster) a 2-minute piece (that’s about 200-250 words) about a fight between two people. Don’t work it too much. When you post it:
1. Ask for feedback
2. Set parameters for what feedback you want
3. Limit the feedback to an exact number of responses
4. Thank your responders once you’ve reached that number
Then go and give feedback to someone else who’s given permission for responses.
Be respectful of your own and other people’s limits.
