SPECIAL SERIES INSPIRED BY THE COVID-19 CRISIS:Play and Creativity in Uncertain Times
We are in a time where it's really hard to think about play and creativity in the conventional ways. Performance venues, movie theaters, events, TV and movie productions are all shut down. We can't take creative classes or laugh with our friends in real life. I have struggled to talk about play in my typical way so I turned to the creative people in my world to learn how they are dealing with time. How has this crisis affected their creativity? How are they rethinking play during this time? What have they learned about themselves that can be relevant to us?
In this conversation
In this conversation I chat with a new creative friend, Toan Lam. Toan is a talk show host, a motivational speaker and the founder of Go Inspire Go. Toan shared his experience of delaying the debut of his talk show, The Toan Lam Show, and how he is allowing himself to let go and not resist the reality of the situation. We talked about creativity as an outlet, the opportunity to get back to the basics with creating and being open to what the Universe is giving you. Our conversation felt like a spiritual experience!
