Part-Time Work, Full-Time Passion


"What is your passion that isn't seeing the light?"

In Part-Time Work, Full-Time Passion from PechaKucha Night Cape Town Vol. 43, Grant Greeff challenges us to prioritize our passions in a world where the majority of our time is spent working and sustaining the status quo. Grant asks, are our priorities based on the time in which we are allocated or on our passions?
