Event description

Description

TEDx is a local, self-organized event that brings people together to share ideas worth spreading. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. All TEDx talks are videoed and uploaded to youtube for viewing.

TEDxLizardcreek will be held in the Lake Gaston area at the Lake Gaston Lions Den on October 28, 2017. On Friday, October 27 there will be a rehearsal and a welcome dinner for speakers and core committee members. The October 28 event will run from mid-morning to the early evening (a final schedule is still pending). Our audience will consist of the Roanoke Valley’s business leaders, area leaders, visionaries and selected area high school students. The event is open, but we want participants who will truly appreciate the TED concept. Our event will be limited to 100 audience members.

Our theme is “Shaping the Unseen: Bridges” What moves us, what shakes us, and what invites us to action is often a private journey that can lead to a very public reaction. That which others cannot see - our hopes, dreams, fears, ambition, trepidation, joy - remains ever present, moving us in a direction of our choosing. In the current world of polarized points of view and divided perspectives on life and the world, we would like to emphasize talks describing innovative bridges. Previously unseen bridges between dissimilar technologies, bridges with the past, bridges between people or groups of people, bridges leading to new opportunities are all candidates for “ideas worth spreading.”
