TEDxMarionCorrectional “Revisionist Destiny” is the fifth TEDx event to take place inside Marion Correctional Institution. Once again we invite people to come together to consider ideas related to incarceration, rehabilitation, and reintegration, this time with focus on how the future may not be what we expect.
From 1:00-4:00PM on December 29, people with varying perspectives will join to hear stimulating talks and to engage in meaningful conversation. The talks and performances will be followed by structured conversation in our famous SpeedTEDxing. After a surprise dinner event, dialogue will be encouraged in Open Spaces. Escort out will be at 7:00PM.
On September 16, 2012, TEDxMarionCorrectional “A Life Worth Living?” was the first TEDx event held inside an adult prison. It was co-curated by two MCI residents. Incarcerated men spoke from the stage and many were part of the audience. Here is the vision we put forward then:
“The hope for TEDxMarionCorrectional is that it become a forum for ideas that inspire people to think deeply about incarceration, the future of rehabilitation and reintegration and ultimately the impact it can have on the world when we all have A Life Worth Living?”
We will continue to live into this vision on December 29.
Speakers will include:
Rachel Bertner: Recovering Yoga - Recondition - Reeducate - Reintegrate
Joe DeLoss: Hot Chicken Takeover - about way more than food - providing fair
Braunwynn Franklin: Peer Wellness Program Manager, Portland, Oregon
and 4 residents
