The panel will present some arguments for the Arts as the most effective means for creating 21st-century learning. In the second part of this session, we'll brainstorm and share ideas on these questions: How can art be used to transform our present educational model? How can we inspire action?

When & Where
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSFED, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxSFED, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
