TEDxLongDock comes to Beacon on June 7

TEDxLongDock_Chronogram_300x250Yes, this is happening. Right in our own backyard. You’ve probably heard the buzz building.

The inaugural TEDxLongDock comes to Beacon on June 7… a day-long event full of stimulating and inspiring talks on the impact of arts, culture, the creative class and entrepreneurship in the Hudson Valley.

Up and down the Hudson, our communities are reinventing themselves. In many there is a newfound optimism and a sense of civic pride.

And it is boldness and creativity, not big industry, that are shaping the new economic landscape. Warehouses are being repurposed as microbreweries, sensational food is being coaxed out of our land, and our Main Streets, once desolate and deserted, are back, busy, bustling.

TEDxLongDock will challenge traditional views of economic development, and explore the vital role of the creative economy, entrepreneurship and the “creative classes” to the longterm vibrancy of our region.

We’re connecting the doers, the thinkers, the facilitators and the catalysts. Join us and our lineup of extraordinary speakers at TEDxLongDock to inspire our thinking, channel our ambition, and help unleash the potential of our bold new creativity.

With only 100 tickets available we invite you to apply today for a pass to attend.

Join us at the Beacon Institute on June 7th.
