Living Your Best (Art) Life

@ VOL 38 ON JUN 06, 2019

Raine Hamilton is a singer-songwriter who has been working full-time as a musician for the last few years. She's been able to do so after learning how to fully break the chains of the "security myth" and commit to a way of living that unapologetically integrates what it is she wants to do for the rest of her existence. Raine shared that knowledge with us in her 20x20 talk, showing us that it is possible to live an art life and chart circumstance in your favour, as long as you have the gusto (and the right mindset) to do so.

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