Twenty Puget Sound innovators, business leaders, doctors and artists will be sharing their “ideas worth spreading” at the first Washington event sponsored by a local group patterned after a national idea-sharing group called TED.
The event is scheduled from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm Tuesday at the Museum of Glass. A two-hour reception will follow. The independently organized event is sponsored by TEDx Tacoma.
Speakers, whose talks will be limited to 18 minutes, include such area idea leaders as Tacoma tech entrepreneur Janine Terrano, Donald Byrd,artistic director of Spectrum Dance Theater and Joe Mirabella, campaign manager at Change.org.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED says it has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.
