Portsmouth’s TEDx event returns for our 5th Annual TEDxPiscataquaRiver on September 8, 2017!
TEDxPiscataquaRiver 2017 is Friday, September 8, at Portsmouth’s 3S Artspace. Doors open at 8:30 for attendees, and the program runs 9:30am–4:30pm, with post-event reception until 6pm.
Speakers will address “On Your Own Terms” directly or indirectly through topics including ambassadorship, heroes, education, conservation, patriotism, stress, technology, ethics, gender identity, city planning and aging. We’ll explore the many ways we can approach various aspects of our life and the world on our terms, and how that concept applies to our communities and others.
Our speakers include business, faith and education leaders, innovators and philanthropists, world-class athletes and musicians, artists and advocates. Speakers are a mix of local, regional and national experts across a wide range of disciplines. Full bios can be found at http://tedxpiscataquariver.com/speakers.
NEW this year: Play with us! Interact with us during the day through a series of immersive art-making experiences created by Circulus Arts that will poke at your perspectives and tickle your terms. Some are collaborative, some are created for the individual – it’s all about exploring the question “what are my terms?”
Our 2017 hosts are Monte Bohanan, director of marketing and communications at The Music Hall, Portsmouth, and Seacoast author, performer and teacher Stephanie Lazenby, director of education at Patrick Dorow Productions.
