TEDx coming to White Rock

Organizer seeks prospective speakers

The organizer of White Rock’s first-ever TEDx talk is searching for residents who have an idea worth spreading.

Jamie MacDonald says a TEDx talk is “like hosting an awesome dinner party with great food, inspirational videos, brilliant speakers and stimulating conversation.”

TEDxWhite Rock, like other TEDx events, is being planned under a license granted by TED, MacDonald noted.

“It is our community’s opportunity to spark conversation and connection through a TED-like experience at a local level. We are actively looking for people in our community with an idea worth spreading.”

Prospective speakers will have to go through a vetting process before being selected. MacDonald said the event will need approximately 12 individuals to participate in the May 31 event, which is to be held at Blue Frog Studios.

A committee has been arranged for the vetting process.
