The ability to make art is inherent within all of us but something gets lost along the way as we navigate the difficulties of life and grow up to be functioning and responsible adults. Author Tobi Nifesi discusses this phenomena in this 20x20 talk, and here he explains how to get back the same passion to create as u once were as a child.

Tobi's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 38, on June 6 2019, at the Park Theatre.
