3 reasons to watch this talk: Shane Koyczan

1) Beautifully crafted rhythmically and structurally, with images that are both striking and resonant. (This is a great one to immerse yourself in, and then go back to the transcript to see how it is crafted…eg the repetition of ‘when I was a kid’.)

2) Humour woven throughout adds to the layers of emotion, and the shared experiences, that help to engage us all.

3) Graceful and evocative gestures, crowdsourced animation, and live violin accompaniment by Hannah Epperson build this talk in a way that is both theatrical and heart-wrenchingly honest.
