Back in early November I shared a talk I presented at Patti Digh’s Life is a Verb Camp, called “So You Wanna Change the World? Go Get Creating!”
Today I have a treat for you: the actual talk!
Yup — the real thing. Audio and video.
I’m in Washington, D.C. this week, visiting my nephew (who has my hair). I flew to D.C. this particular week in order to participate in the Women’s March on Washington, which hasn’t happened yet while I’m recording this intro, but will have happened already by the time you’re listening.
So in other words, the catalyst for my trip to D.C. was something that most people would probably pretty easily categorize as an activist, change-the-world kind of activity.
Marching, peace rallies, calling your governmental representative, writing letters, making speeches… these are the kinds of things that you might think of as world-changing.
Or volunteering at an AIDS clinic or a homeless shelter or a refugee camp.
Or teaching, or being a nurse, or inventing a new technology.
Those are relatively easy to see as having world-changing potential.
But creating? Making art? Playing?
That is what this 15-minute talk is all about. Watch the video below, or click on the button above to listen to the audio.
