The lecture is by Sir Ken Robinson, an author and creativity advocate who challenges rethinking school systems. The illustrations are by the Royal Society for the encouragement of the Arts, manufactures and commerce (RSA), which produces many videos and champions efforts that serve as a push for a 21st century enlightenment.
