Stretch Your Mind with TED Talks -- at the Rossland Library
The Rossland Public Library will be live-streaming one day of the TED Talks conference taking place in Vancouver on Thursday, February 18.
TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). A conference has been held each spring which, since 2014, is held in Vancouver. There are a number of other events over the course of the year along with TEDx events, which are locally organized, following TED’s guidelines.
This year’s topic is Dreams. The three sessions to be streamed on Thursday, 18 February at the library are titled Out of the Box, The Dreams that Define Us and Fantasists and Catalysts. Each session is roughly two hours and features five to seven speakers. There is approximately an hour between sessions, allowing time for viewers to discuss the ideas.
This is a free event and no registration is required.
For a schedule of the day, please contact the library, in person or at 250-362-7611.
