This week on The Creative Mother Podcast host Kate Hursthouse talks to Jade Tang - Taylor who is a purpose-driven, design-led, creative social entrepreneur. Over the past 10-15+ years her career has been more of a squiggly line than a straight one, something I can really relate to. Jade has worked on a myriad of game-changing projects with change-making organisations, moving in & out of being a social entrepreneur to social intrapreneur across various organisations, industries & sectors. However, the common thread through them all is that she is deeply passionate about design for social innovation, social change & more recently systems change.
She brought Creative Mornings to New Zealand 10 years ago. Currently, the main "hat" she wears is the Director of Innovation & Partnerships at Innovation Unit. She is also an Edmund Hillary Fellow, a SheEO activator but most importantly Jade a proud working mum of one.

About your host:
Kate Hursthouse is an artist, creative business owner and single mother to one awesome kid. She has run her own creative business since 2014 and has been involved in a whole range of projects over the years - from commercial illustrations and design projects to contemporary art, children’s book illustrations and hand-painted murals. She started this podcast to try and answer the question: how do we continue to be creative and produce creative work, while raising children? Her goal is to create a little corner of the internet where creative mothers share their stories and gain a feeling of community, understanding, and inspiration.
