Guess who’s one of this year’s presenters? Me. I’m so excited, nervous and still trying to figure out what not to wear. So, I’ve been a little busy so forgive me for not posting on social media.
TEDxDayton spreads ideas and perspectives to spark conversation and connections in the community. The event uses TED’s celebrated format of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that foster learning, inspiration, and wonder while also prompting conversations that matter.
After an open call for auditions earlier in the year, the speakers committee chose 21 individuals to present on this year’s theme—CURRENT. “’Current’ evokes energy, movement, and the pursuit of knowledge, and it also holds great significance for the history and landscape of our community,” said TEDxDayton Co-chair Diane Farrell. “Every year, we look for a theme that carries layers of meaning. We want the audience to come into the experience with their own ideas and their wheels already turning, and then we want them to encounter something unexpected. This year’s speakers are ready to deliver.”
