TEDxABQ Salon: Design

Design_emailheader-2Let’s talk about design.

All kinds of design. Everywhere we look design is built into all things, but what makes some design good and some bad? How does design shape the world we live in and how do we interact with it? Why is design important? Does design exist in the absence of sentient thought? Is design the artifice to nature’s grace? Can design be a catalyst for change?

Design is the “D” in TED, so let’s take a closer look at this multi-disciplined topic at the very first TEDxABQ Design Salon to be held on June 5th at the Albuquerque Museum, 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Tickets on sale soon.

TEDxABQSalon | Community Engagement on April 3 – Sold Out

Better TogetherApril-Salon-web general-SOLDOUT

How can we make Albuquerque better together?

To improve our community we need cross-pollination, collaboration across sectors, and strong citizen participation. We need to share our unique skills and interests, mobilize volunteers, and foster relationships to strengthen our community and make more powerful impacts.

For the April TEDxABQSalon, we are bringing together community organizers, non-profit leaders and innovators from a range of communities in Albuquerque—art, tech, bike, agriculture, urbanism, social justice, and more—to share their ideas and efforts and to inspire new interest, participation, and collaboration with one another and with you. TED is about ideas worth spreading. This salon is about taking our local ideas and challenging us to become a part of their action. Bring your business cards and come to connect.

Due to the intimate style of this event, created to foster discussions, seating is limited. Light snacks and a cash bar will be provided by Slate Street Café.

TEDxABQSalon Art on Feb. 6 – Tickets on Sale

TEDxABQ Salon | Why Art?

ARTSalon Web

Why Art? Interesting question, right? We experience art every day of our lives – walk by it, visit galleries, and even create it – but why? What is its function, importance, purpose, and place in the world? If you’ve wondered some of these things – ventured to answer such questions, or even posed them to others or yourself – then this Salon is absolutely a place to be. Why Art? In this TEDXABQ Salon you will have folks from a range of backgrounds speak on topics that toy, tackle, confront, and create around this question. You may not leave with answers, and maybe even more questions, but we promise that you will leave inspired!

The TEDxABQSalon is a place to start conversations and spread ideas that matter. We endeavor to bring together thought-leaders, visionaries and curious minds to create an atmosphere of exploration. Due to the intimate style of this event, created to foster discussions, seating is limited. Light snacks and a cash bar will be provided by Slate Street Café.
