Erik Schlicht at TEDxURI 2018
The myth of the starving artist
Erik Schlicht challenges the conventional wisdom that says that majors in the arts are impractical.
Student, Theatre + Political Science
Erik Schlicht is a student at the University of Rhode Island majoring in theatre and political science, and has been acting since early high school. He believes that there is a disconnect in our culture between what we think we know about artistic majors and careers and the actual outcomes of people who pursue them, and speaking from the TEDx stage is one way he hopes to bridge that gap.
