TEDxBozeman will be held at The Commons on Friday, March 22, 2013, with live-streaming online around the globe. Tickets to the inaugural 2012 event sold out in 6 days and this year’s expanded event promises to be even more popular. This exciting independently-organized TEDx conference is a day to showcase innovative local presenters and engage in stimulating and inspiring dialogues.
TEDxBozeman has sought out some of the most innovative figures in Montana to speak on a diverse collection of topics related to the Big Sky State. Many of these dreamers have already been recognized on the national stage, with coverage on 60 Minutes, National Public Radio, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel, etc. However, this collection of speakers and performers was chosen based not only on their ideas, but also on how their concrete actions help Montanans continue in their pioneering traditions. The diverse docket of fifteen presenters includes science writer David Quammen, physicist Nicolas Yunes, global educator Genevieve Chabot, wildlife activist and TV host Casey Anderson and world-renowned composer Eric Funk.
TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently by volunteers, on a community-by-community basis. TEDxBozeman is sponsored by local businesses and organizations that share the same beliefs and values as TED. The event is aimed at creating dialogue and action, as well as giving Bozeman’s diverse community a platform for sharing their thoughts, ideas and initiatives.
