Carson City Brewery Arts Center hosting Tedx community forum April 8

One hundred of Carson City’s most impassioned TEDx enthusiasts will come together on Friday, April 8, 2016, for a day of networking and dialogue around the theme “Creating the Community You Want to Live In.”

The event will take place at Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall and will feature a line-up of speakers on topics ranging from innovations and ideas in community to health to technology and the arts. Attendees will also have an opportunity to network at an on-site lunch event.

For those unable to attend live, the event will be webcast live on Ustream. Additionally, there will be opportunity to view from a satellite location set up on the Brewery Arts Center Campus allowing for additional networking, gathering and community building.

“We are extremely honored that Carson City was chosen to host a TEDx event,” said Gina Lopez Hill, TEDxCarsonCity founder and organizing committee member. “I believe hosting a TEDx event in our community will change the very face of our town by inspiring and empowering its citizens. The event will offer Carson City an opportunity to share its passion and ideas with communities all over the world and become a part of a global conversation intent on making the world a better place for future generations.”

The independently produced event, operating under a license from TED, has been organized by community volunteers and is aimed at creating dialogue as well as giving people a forum to share their passions, ideas and experiences.

Speakers for the event are going to be a mix of local and out of town live presenters of which the committee is still in the process of selecting. Additionally, the day will be rounded out with five official TED Talk videos to support and inspire ideas of the day.

Tickets cost $99 and include parking, entrance and lunch. To attend, fill out an application this fall at
