Join us for TEDxPeacePlaza!
After an engaging and enlightening inaugural TEDxPeacePlaza in 2013, we’re returning to the historic Japantown/Fillmore neighborhood with this year’s event:
Transcending barriers, time, and boundaries. Renewal is about growth, change, re-adapting, or repurposing old solutions to new challenges. The history of the Japantown/Fillmore neighborhood becomes a catalyst for powerful voices and broader discussions of how to preserve the most important essences of the past while evolving into the present and future. In times of scarcity, how can we find moments of abundance? How do we know which pasts are worth preserving, and what to leave behind? Our theme of Renewal invites bold approaches and reflections of what it means to uncover and support hidden vibrancy in moments that are seemingly dull and stagnant, and we move forward to a new day.
