TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2017: Sharing Our Future

A weekend afternoon TEDx event enables students, working and retired adults to enjoy their morning, have an early lunch, and then experience some scintillating brain stimulation at TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2017. The Saturday afternoon event leaves the evening free and still provides some of the best "ideas worth spreading" as speakers step onto the red circle at Kamiak High School in Mukilteo.

This year's theme is "Sharing Our Future." Speakers and performers will explore the promise, risks, expectations and potential meaning of a future

There will be livestream viewing events at eight community libraries: Camano Island, Coupeville, Darrington, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Marysville, Mukilteo and Snohomish; and also at GenCare in Granite Falls. Registration for the main venue and viewing sites opens Oct. 15. TEDxSnoIsleLibraries will also be livestreamed to the Sno-Isle Libraries website.

Previous TEDxSnoIsleLibraries events have drawn over a thousand attendees at Edmonds Center for the Arts, and other group viewing locations (including 13 community libraries). Thousands more watched the event live online. And hundreds of thousands more continue to watch and share these TEDx talks posted on the TEDx YouTube channel.

Our 2016 theme: Transformations

Speakers and performers explored the theme and sought to capture movement and change; conversion and shift. Our goal was to infuse our audiences with the wonders of metamorphosis. The reaction was enthusiastic and this local event reached the world.

Check out our photos from the event.

Our 2015 theme: Creating New Futures

Thousands of people connected with the library in a new way and began creating new futures together as 23 speakers and performers took to the red circle to share ideas worth spreading.

This Nov. 6, 2015 inaugural event was live-streamed from the Edmonds Center for the Arts to 10 community libraries and four additional public viewing sites for groups to enjoy together. You can watch videos of TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2015 talks.
