TEDxMonctonSalon – Be Heard!
Have you ever watched a TED Talk video or talk and wished you had other people to discuss it with? If yes, then TEDxMonctonSalons are for you!
Save your spot by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your name and email address.
Salons provide an interactive format to engage and connect. They are designed to introduce, or refresh, TED Talk ideas and encourage positive active discussion among participants.
Alcohol will be available for purchase to help us support future TEDxMoncton events.
Held in a more intimate setting, attendees sit in small groups conducive to conversation. The two hour event is equally divided between watching and participating. The format includes a short introduction and then a selection of TED or TEDx Talks usually around a central theme just like a live TED event. However, after each video, groups share thoughts and ideas about what we have just seen. Pros, cons, impacts on the future; if you can think it, you can share it in this open respectful format.
The next TEDxMonctonSalon is Saturday, June, 23, 7-9pm at the Venn Centre. The theme for this event is “Cognition & The Brain”. The TED talk videos will look at how we can better organize ourselves and our world as we go through change. Engage in thoughtful discussions with others as we delve into the topic of change.
