ABOUT THE TALK
On mermaids, pumpkins and hunger
“Who is your great idol, your big example?”
Ianka lost track of the times a journalist asked her that question
Does she need an idol? And a great one at that?
She would much rather have a muse.
Like celebrated artists.
Even better, be the muse of a celebrated artist.
And she almost was.
But then she got cold feet…
Ianka Fleerackers talks about her encounters with the muse during her rather eccentric journey from actor to mentor for thought leaders.”
