Randy Bretz, co-curator of TEDxLincoln, (www.tedxlincoln.com), is seeking involvement with schools, libraries and organizations in four or five communities strategically placed around our state to help us recruit presentations and performances as well as to host viewing sites for our live events. The TEDxLincoln organizers hope that Speech and Debate coaches across Nebraska will see these events as an opportunity to have their students attend one of the viewing sites.
TEDxLincoln, an event that was initiated in 2011 among a small group in Lincoln, has grown to include two major live events with a vision to give Nebraskans an opportunity to share ideas and performances that can contribute to a better world. Since our first event in 2011, we’ve shared nearly 100 presentations and performances to audiences attending the live events as well as a large number of participants who have joined us online. We’ve touched more than two million world-wide as a result, and we’re looking to grow.
For the upcoming school year, two viewing parties have been set:
- TEDxYouth@Lincoln August 16, 2014
- TEDxLincoln Main November 14, 2014
