Sit down. Be quiet.

PRESENTED ON FEB 23, 2017
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 29

Take a page from Brent Manke's book and enjoy the life you have, slow down and take it in.  Rushing everywhere we go never allows us to enjoy the journey.  The things you miss along the way may just one day be what lands you up on the Pechakucha stage.

What I Would Do with an Extra Day

BY DOM BREADMORE
@ VOL 24 ON FEB 20, 2016

Artist Dom Breadmore considers what he would, or should, do if he were given a final extra day. There are endless possibilities but he finds good reasons not to do most of them and rants about people who set themselves time-based challenges in order to bend the rules. All this leads him to wonder about the nature of time and how it was probably invented 'to make sure everything didn't happen all at once'. Dom ends by asking us in turn to consider what we might gain from slowing down and making the most of our 24hours.

Pause

BY ROB WATSON
@ VOL 20 ON NOV 23, 2017

Do we ever stop and ask the question why do we do what we do?
 
Could it be that we are going about it the wrong way and there's a better way, a slower more thoughtful way to achieving a fulfilled life?
 
This is something that Rob Watson from Raw has been been exploring for the past few years. Listen as he shares his insights on how slowing down could get us where we want faster.
