Our second TEDx event took place Nov. 18 at Edmonds Center for the Arts, plus 13 library viewing sites and four community viewing sites. Thousands of people watched online. The reaction was enthusiastic.
Our 2016 theme: Transformations. Movement and change. Conversion and shift. Our 17 presenters and two guest artists explored that. Our goal: to infuse our audiences with the wonders of metamorphosis. Check out our photos from the event.
Our inaugural event was held Nov. 6, 2015, also at the Edmond Center for the Arts. You can watch videos of those talks.

Think of it as a taste of TEDx. On May 10, Edmonds Community College, Sno-Isle Libraries, Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, and The Daily Herald served up "Shift Happens: Creating New Futures." The event was held at Black Box Theatre in Mukilteo Hall at Edmonds CC, 20000 68th Ave. W, Lynnwood. It was free and open to the public.
"TEDx Salons are bite-sized TEDx events" said Ken Harvey, TEDxSnoIsleLibraries organizer and communications director for the library district. "The audience and speakers can have a closer interaction. Attendees are invited to discuss speakers' ideas and experience a cohesive community of thinkers."
