In an inspired talk on creativity, famed actor, writer, and director Ethan Hawke considers the power that unhindered self expression can have on an individual and the people that they surround themselves with.
Hawke begins his talk by speaking to the overwhelming need many people feel to create something "good" at all times, rather than allowing themselves to fail or simply not care what the world thinks of their idea. These self-imposed boundaries can be incredibly debilitating to creatives, and has Hawke states, the world is often a very unreliable critic.
Throughout his talk, Hawke challengers his listeners to think about where their interests truly lie, create work that's inspired by what they love, and never be afraid to "play the fool."
