You Bring the Courage.
I'll Bring the Challenge.
Hey You. Listen. I know you're caught in the space between being & becoming. Not only are you going to survive the interim, you're gonna turn it into your greatest superpower. Let's find our cape...together.
I'm Kaira Akita, an actress & creator who, after years of creative crisis, identity anxiety, and "fear of falling behind" syndrome, has finally embraced the idea that the interim isn't a place to avoid, but a place to find my unique superpower and infuse it into my identity, life, and creative process. My hope is to make The Inspired Interim a personal, powerful, & practical space that empowers driven artists to embrace the spaces between being & becoming as the place to harness their most clear, courageous, and connected selves. Because I believe when artists are at their best, the world becomes a better place. And there are no shortcuts. Only The Inspired Interim.
YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF:
You know God has put you on this Earth with a unique creative gift, but you're tired of things not looking & feeling like your highest purpose and potential.
You've experienced some success in your work but you have a greater vision for your art beyond the standard definition of success and aren't quite sure how to get there.
You've tried to figure out "what you're doing wrong" on your own but have reached a point where you crave community, connection, and a fresh perspective outside your own mental loop.
You realize your most rewarding art has occurred when it's personal, and you want to understand more about your own identity to take your work and creative process to the next level.
You are a straight-shooter who appreciates perspective that empowers you & calls you out on your own shit, conversations with like-minded people that go beyond feel-good inspiration, and actionable strategies that help you explore & embrace the space between as the ultimate superpower for the artist you're meant to be.
Welcome to your new superpower headquarters. Take a look around.
