Artist and social sculptor Philippa P.B. Hughes recently sat down with Student Advisory Board Members Sehrish Hussain and Jacob Ward to discuss her art practice.

Take a listen to the fun and in-depth interview with Philippa below to hear her thoughts on topics like the intersectionality of being an artist (and a lawyer!), creating intentional spaces for honest conversations across political, social, and cultural differences, and more.

More of Philippa’s work can be found on her website and her Instagram.
