Event Details


Watch the TEDGlobal2012: Radical Openness conference as it happens on Wednesday, June 27.

Join us anytime for viewing and conversation.

Don't miss TEDxDirigo's Try-Outs during the event from 7:15pm-8:30pm! Presenters who pre-register will have up to two minutes to give the talk of their life in front of a live audience. The audience will select "the people's choice," whom we will work with and feature at TEDxDirigo's live event Villages on October 20 in Lewiston. The TEDxDirigo team will also be looking for speakers for future events. If you'd like to tryout you must pre-register; first come, first serve, and we will be screening to make sure proposed talks are relevant to the theme of Villages.

This is a FREE event. And you can stay for as little or as long as you like!
