Canadian Shane Koyczan is another spoken word artist I saw and heard last week in Georgia.
With his words, he stands up for those who are bullied and those who find their days difficult to navigate. He helps us understand what it’s like to feel different in a world that requires us to conform to a norm that negates the very thing that makes us human, our emotions.
He is doing important work in the world.
To This Day
From the TED blog re Instructions for a Bad Day
Koyczan got some help in sharing these “Instructions for a Bad Day” from a group of students at G.P. Vanier secondary school in British Columbia. They wrote the storyboard for the video, handled the cameras, did the acting and collected the props. The piece was created for Pink Shirt Day — a national day devoted to the discussion of bullying.
