TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2016 speakers will explore Transformation

By Ken Harvey

On Nov. 18, dynamic speakers will take the stage for TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2016 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts. They will share “ideas worth spreading” around the theme Transformation.

thumbnail Transformation clouds playThe dictionary provides several definitions for “transformation.” All point towards movement, change, and growth. Rather than gradual momentum and slow progress, the word most often evokes profound and radical metamorphosis.

At Sno-Isle Libraries, we are working to stage an event that fulfills the spirit and reality of the theme. TEDx speakers are preparing to share short talks on their experiences with transformation or their efforts to transform the world through science, music, business, space, and invention. This second TEDxSnoIsleLibraries is shaping up as another don’t-miss regional event.

So that you can begin preparing yourself for the ideas to come, we’ve created a short video around the question of “What does transformation mean to you?” Let us know what you think about the video and the question it poses.

Registration for TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2016—both at the main venue and viewing sites throughout the region—will open in October. Please watch our website for the latest information.

We look forward to repeating the excitement of our inaugural TEDx, which yielded 23 amazing talks, and sharing it with you.

Ken Harvey is director of communications for Sno-Isle Libraries, and co-organizer of TEDxSnoIsleLibraries.
