Kat’s Korner: The Podcast

KKS3 EP 9 | After The Fact: I Directed An Opera Kat's Korner: The Podcast

As a cultural architect, my primary goal is to tell the story, the message. How I go about doing that depends on what is necessary. So for me, the medium is inconsequential. Not to say that it's not important, but it doesn't figure into whether or not I'm going to do it. What's important to me is I can tell a good story that the people are interested in or a story that I'm interested in. And if that means I'm going to direct an opera, then that's what I'm going to do. Key takeaways: Nothing is too big of an ask–don't be ashamed to ask or negotiate the things you need to feel safe and comfortable so you can do what you have to do. Get out of your backyard–work with people who are not part of your network to build something together (for me, this always feels good). To be vulnerable about moments where I’m not feeling comfortable is important. About Kat: Founder and owner of LiL SoSo Productions, Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi lives a varied life from being a radio and podcast host, a creative director, a writer and professor, a motivator and a traveler. It is from all of these roles the term “cultural architect” comes when describing what she does. As a cultural architect, Kat is mainly concerned with creating meaningful Black content and experiences, pulling on the global Black thread that brings the element of “cool” wherever it is stitched in.
