Make your plans to attend the final TEDx Yakima event of the season on Thursday, April 6. The theme of "Absence and Presence" will be explored by featured speaker Tom Hausken, whose exhibition observation texture topography: The New Paintings of Tom Chet Hausken is currently on view at the museum. Additional information to follow soon.
In the meantime, here's what you missed at the most recent TEDx Yakima event on February 2:
- The featured speaker is Julieanne O'Conner, who has had a diverse and colorful career as an actor, business professional, and author of the 'Spelling it Out' book series. Her talk, 'Alive and Counting,' explores how re-examining potent words like expectation, failure, and death can give one a fresh and positive perspective in times of adversity.
- Poet Pat Boughton also joins the program. He is an outdoor enthusiast, avid reader, and a middle school language arts teacher. Whether on stage or in the classroom, Pat utilizes the power of words to inspire and encourage.
- The evening includes pre-recorded TED Talks by Simon Sinek — 'Start with Why' — and Mandy Catron— 'A Better Way to Talk About Love'—which continue the evening's exploration of language and communication.
- Tickets are $5 per person. Doors open at 6:00 PM and the presentations begin at 7:00 PM. For more information about TEDx Yakima, please visit their web site at tedxyakima.org.
