It’s alliterative, but who cares? Tomorrow sees Tacoma’s second TEDx Talk at Theatre on the Square – a gathering of minds from all disciplines that’s part of a worldwide movement to share new ways of seeing and imagining the world. Sixteen thinkers and achievers from the greater Puget Sound community, ranging from professors to artists to business people, will each take 15 minutes to explore their world view with slide illustrations.
If you’ve heard of the TED talks (an international phenomenon that’s viewable for free online at ted.com) then this is similar, only independently and locally organized. This year’s theme is Desire, and speakers include math teacher Cyrus Brown, choreographers Rainbow Fletcher and Maureen Whiting, Catholic priest Fr. Steve Lantry, surgeon Dr. Dennis Nichols and leadership director Kellie Richardson.
TEDx runs in hour-long sessions from 3-9 p.m. with reception following. $79. Theatre on the Square, 915 Broadway, Tacoma. 253-591-5894, broadwaycenter.org
