We are proud to host the first independent TED event — TEDxAshland — here in southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley. This one-day event will be held on May 20, 2019 at Camelot, 1:00 - 5:00pm.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
The following speakers and topics have been chosen for this year’s TEDxAshland event.
Chris Chambers, “Fire and Smoke”
Jessica Gomez, “Death of the Middle Class.”
Jim Teece and Trevor Yarrish, “A New Sustainable Economy in the Rogue Valley”
Daniel Sherrel, “Songs About Death”
Bettsie Massie, “Using the Constitution to Save Democracy”
James Adams, “What Robots Can Do and Will Do”
Scott Dewing, “Our Faustian Bargain with Technology”
Linda Hugle, “Living and Dying with Stage IV Cancer”
Davis Wilkins M.D., “Don’t Look Away From Dying”
Sudhir Gautam, “The Lives and Deaths of Multiple Identities”
Jennifer Matthews, “New Ways to Grieve”
Dr. Neimark, “The Promise of Stem Cell Therapy in Curing Diseases”
