Event Details

TEDxSalem IV, Salem’s official independently organized TED event, is an immersion experience at the intersection of technology, entertainment, design, science and art, that takes place Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Salem Convention Center.

“Playing on the idea of New Year’s resolutions, this year’s theme is ‘Revolutions,’” said co-curator Brian Hart. “We wanted a theme that was familiar but dynamic, simple and powerful, a word that would evoke a strong emotion but could be interpreted many different ways.”

This year’s speakers include:
Non-violent action activist Alia Braley
Teenage inventor Megha Joshi
Pulitzer-nominate writer Renee Mitchell
Community protestor Teressa Raiford
Punk rock chemist Karen Holman
Mindful thinker and teacher Jerry Braza
Insect farmer Yesenia Gallardo
Youth advocate Warren Binford
Award-winning author Gina Oschner
Courageous revolutionist Vanessa Timmons
Environmental activist Kelsey Cascadia Rose Juliana and
Artist in Residence Kathryn Cellerini Moore.

TEDxSalem is a day of talks, entertainment and activities that aims to inspire, engage and transform.”

Ticket cost includes a day of talks, entertainment, and interactive activities, plus breakfast, lunch, beverages, snacks, special TEDxSalem attendee swag and lots of fun surprises.
