Shane Koyczan is an award winning Canadian poet, author and performer. The world took notice of him when his influential, anti-bullying, To This Day Project video went viral in early 2013 and has reached over 14 million views and counting. To This Day is a project based on a spoken word poem. Animators and motion artists brought their unique styles to 20 second segments that will thread into one fluid voice. This collaborative volunteer effort demonstrates what a community of caring individuals are capable of when they come together.
The art (poetry and visuals) becomes the medium to a powerful message. For those who haven't listened or watched this, it is worth it.
