TEDx Talk: How to Live a Creative Life

Creativity

I had the opportunity to go to a fantastic event at the Vancouver Art Gallery last week. The event was organized by a group called Arts Scene Vancouver who organizes events for artists, business people and creative types.

At this event, I happened to meet Dr. Ray Hsu who happens to have a TEDx Talk called “How to Live a Creative Life”. Dr. Ray Hsu is a writer, teacher and artist who frequently lectures on the topic of creativity.

Check out his video!  I watched the the video last week and it is fantastic. It is packed with some great ideas on creativity and education. (Click on the link below as I couldn’t find a way to embed the video)

On the same vein as Ray’s talk on living a creative life, check out this fantastic book on creativity called “The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life by Twylla Tharp. I just started reading this book this morning and I already love it! I’ll be posting a book review once I finish.

A boost of inspiration – TEDx Vancouver Part 1

Last weekend, I attended the fourth annual TEDx event in Vancouver. As usual, the event was filled with great energy, inspiring speakers and of course ideas worth spreading. For those of you who don’t know, TEDx events are independently run speaker events that license the TED brand and feature a mix of live speakers at TED Talks. This year was especially neat because it was the biggest TEDx in Vancouver featuring an audience of over 2300 people.

Some of my favorite speakers this year include:

– Mark Brand – “The Impact of an Unconventional Solution”

– Robin Esrock – “Learn to Travel: Travel to Learn”

– Dr. John Izzo – “The Defining Moment for a Generation-In-Waiting”

Although the videos aren’t posted yet, if you click here, you can check out all the speaker bios.

In the meantime, check out videos of my favorite speakers from last year’s TEDx Vancouver lineup:

Victor Lucas – “The 3D Rules”

Romeo Dallaire – “The Frontier of Social Revolution”

Christopher Gaze – “Shakespeare is Everywhere”

Check back again for part 2 of this post where i’ll be posting some of my favorite photos and quotes from TEDx Vancouver 2012.
