Event Details

Join us April 18th, for “River City Renaissance”, a TEDxJacksonvilleSalon, held in partnership with Jacksonville University.

We will wrap our minds around a variety of topics that impact Jacksonville, including our river, the arts, becoming a fit city, and crowd funding models.

Our afternoon will begin with watching a series of TED Talks, to open our minds with inspiring ideas. After, we will fuel our brains with light refreshments, and then join enriching discussion groups with local experts. These discussions will focus on how we can positively affect change in these areas within the Jacksonville community.

Four TED talks will explore the following topics:

Health & Wellness: What does it mean to be a Fit City? 

Discussion Led by: Dr. Hausenblas

The Arts in Jacksonville: Why Public Art Matters

Discussion Led by: Hope McMath

Crowd Funding: The Art of Asking 

Discussion Led by: Elton Rivas

The River: Its Future and the Role it Plays  in our City

Discussion Led by: Dr. Quint White

Community experts will lead discussion groups on each talk. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the dialogue. The program will begin at 2pm. Discussion groups will start at 3pm. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

The cost for the event is $10.

Our program starts at 2:00 p.m. in the Swisher Theater on Jacksonville University’s Campus. For directions, download the Jacksonville University Campus Map, and locate building number 13, in the Academics section. Visitor parking is located across the street on University Oaks Drive.
