The Rhode Island School of Design went viral recently when John Waters was invited to give the commencement speech on graduation day. The iconic Waters, with his usual verve and style, simultaneously dazzled and delighted as he shared his thoughts on being creative in a world that so frequently stifles individuals even as it celebrates them.

Make Trouble presents the full text of his speech, illustrated and visualized in suitably dramatic fashion to maximize its impact on the reader. Along the way, Waters discusses the potential and importance of filth (both to him and to the world), the value of being true to yourself, the roles of parent and child, and how utterly baffling it is that he’s there at all giving his speech.

It’s John Waters boiled down to his basic elements, and it’s as funny as it is inspiring. He throws down the gauntlet to his audience, challenging them to challenge themselves. He does all this while having a good time celebrating AND poking fun at himself in equal measure.

Make Trouble is an injection of weirdness, joy, and provocation right into your brain. Make the most of it.
