"Maintain your collaborative skills—which you’ve been socialized to have, and develop your make-believe skills—which you’ve been socialized to give up, and then you can have the best of both worlds."

By making believe, we can empathize with others unlike us. ​Greg Tavares wants you to play more silly games. He's a master improv artist that teaches us lessons in empathy all the while taking the Charleston community through a magical game of make-believe. ​
