Opening Keynote: Embrace the Shake

Phil HansenPhil Hansen
“The Artist for the People”
Artist Phil Hansen suggests that we can increase our creativity by “Embracing the Limitation.” During art school, Phil developed nerve damage in his hand which caused a constant tremor, which prevented him from working in his preferred style of art. His commitment to “embrace the shake,” as he calls it, helped him be a far more innovative artist. Phil will share his personal journey of challenge and triumph and will inspire you to rise above any obstacle to succeed. This is more than just a talk, it’s an experience!
