TEDx Front Range is taking place in Loveland, Colorado on May 31, 2013. It’s not a festival per se, but I am featuring the event this week anyway.
I attended my first TEDx last year, and was pleasantly surprised. I walked away inspired and impressed with the level of talent and determination that emanated from the stage on that afternoon.
If you aren’t familiar with TEDx, it originated from TED. TED was founded in 1984, by Richard Saul Wurman. He saw a powerful convergence between technology, entertainment and design (TED) happening in the world. The event brings together movers and shakers; individuals who have done amazing things or simple things that have had amazing results.
The event involves speakers taking the stage for up to 18 minutes. There are two annual TED conferences, with one occurring in the United States and the other in Edinburgh, Scotland. Speakers have included movie directors, software developers, founders of various nonprofit organizations and so many more.
A TEDx is an indepdently organized TED event, and hundreds now take place across the world, including here in Colorado.
TEDx Front Range will present the Pioneers, Guides & Innovators who are elevating the Front Range of Colorado to be unique and vibrant. Speakers include artists, environmentalists, teachers, athletes, writers and magicians.
Here’s a little secret about the Mayor of HeidiTown. I love magic, and I’m most excited about the two magicians in the lineup at TEDx Front Range, Dan Jaspersen and Derek McKee.
If you are a magician, I’m the gal you want in the audience. I love the feeling of being amazed, and I am truly amazed by magic.
Another person I’m looking forward to hearing speak is artist Daniel Ibanez. He is a G+ sensation with 1,593,199 following him. To put this in perspective, 241 people follow me on G+. Find out why Ibanez is so big on G+ by attending TEDx Front Range.
If you want to be enlightened and amazed, don’t miss this event!
May 31, from 1 to 5:30 p.m.
What a great lineup of speakers! But from my experience what makes a great event is the audience. And Heiditown residents I believe would make this event ELEVATING! Thanks for the shout out Mayor for the event, I know all the volunteers have been working hard to put on a better show than last year’s TEDx FrontRange. Hope to see lots of HeidiTown residents there.
