  • Through his passion for drawing, artist Charlie Mackesy challenges us to abandon the idea of being good. Instead have the courage to draw, sing, play from your heart, from your emotions. And if we do this together, we build connections, we start communicating, we start belonging, we start to have a community. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx​

    I have never cried so much from a Ted talk. It made me realized that we all repress that inner mess. Instead of embracing it like the child crying out for its mother. May I embrace the mess of a self. May I love the mud because without mud there is no lotus.

    it’s amazing how the idea of the mess really shines through him. Like - he came in late, unprepared and just said what he had to say - a very simple thought but he was wandering his own thoughts during the talk, telling some stories, bringing the dogs, I’ve never seen a ted talk like this before. the talk was an actual mess, and that’s what he came to say and I LOVE that. Also if you haven’t read his book I really really recommend it. It’s healing, kind and heartwarming and truly makes you feel worth something.

    I stopped doing art after college because teachers in high schooled college said my art wasn't good. I always loved the classes because I felt free no matter how bad my paintings were...but Those critiques hurt terribly and I stopped doing it the I got out of college. I cried during this talk. I AM going back to doing art, because it's fun for me, to heck with what those who taught be said! And I am just 70!

    I love this talk!! I teach kindergarden and the kids are constantly saying "mine is better than yours." Wow, 5 and 6 years old... already afraid to enjoy marking on paper. I remember a time when I loved drawing so much, it was my existance. Ive feel lost, lately. I want to keep doing this thing I loved so much... I used to draw horses all day, every day. I have a young family now and my spark has been misplaced in all the busy, rushing around. Ill find it again. Its a transition. Just ordered charlies book. Cant wait to read it!

    If I can’t sleep, I listen to Charlie’s stories. He’s such an interesting, laid back guy. His voice is beautiful.

    I absolutely love Charlie's talk and in my opinion as a not-very-prolific artist who struggles all the time he has 'nailed' it when he says 'Just make a mess!' (Jane Tredinnick)
