TEDxReno is here and you are invited


tedx_lrg_logo-300x120-8693370-4505412TEDx RENO NEWS RELEASE – On Friday, April 26, “The Biggest Little City” will be forever changed as TEDxReno makes it’s first appearance. In the spirit of TEDx, speakers ranging from an internationally recognized fine art photographer to the former CEO of Travelocity.com will gather to discuss “infectious ideas” and to channel TEDxReno’s theme of “The Biggest Little Citizen” – regardless of your background, status, gender or age, you have the power to make a difference in our community. 

In the midst of an unsure but exciting time of momentum in the local entrepreneurial community, TEDxReno gives you access to the brightest and bravest minds with a dedication to change. As a sponsor of TEDxReno, EDAWN invites you to join in the inspiration. While the live event sold out quickly, four locations around Reno have offered to host live streamed Simulcast events for audiences still looking for the collective TEDxReno experience. The simulcasts are hosted from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Consider taking a morning, or afternoon to enjoy this local movement with global implications. All the information you need can be found at www.TEDxReno.com.

At TEDxReno we look to embrace the notion that even as the essential building block of the community, the citizen is often lost in the shuffle. However, anyone can transform a community, a country, or even the world with something as “small” as an idea. Unfortunately, the development of the consumer-based society has uprooted us from the core concepts of what it means to be a citizen. We are not just a product of our surroundings but a crucial facet to its composition, as our living environment is a mirror reflection of how we view ourselves. The ideas and imagination of The Biggest Little Citizen can allow small ideas to become big ideas; consumers to return to their moral and social obligations; and reflection to become a statement, not a result.
