2014 is going to be a big year. TEDxMileHighLive is slated for March 18 at City Hall, we’re holding a 2000-person youth event on April 16 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and TEDxMileHigh is happening again June 14. Beyond our events, TEDxMileHigh is pleased to announce the full-force launch of our Adventure platform, which will provide behind-the-scenes, exclusive access to the people and places that make Greater Denver so dynamic. Intrigued? Our first adventure of 2014 is February 20, 6-8pm at Converge Denver. We are tremendously excited that award-winning, internationally-recognized poets Bobby LeFebre and Ken Arkind will be hosting, both of whom gave performances at TEDxMileHigh. There are only 20 slots available, and the event will be free-of-charge. Bobby sent us the following as a representation of what you’ll experience at our first 2014 Adventure:
“Poetry, like all living things, is always growing and evolving. The art-form has served as an essential component of our history and collective consciousness, and every person that has ever walked this earth has had a story to tell. Although poetry is often viewed as a mere exercise in the esoteric, we argue it was never meant to be relegated to that hollow identity. Join us in an exclusive TEDxMileHigh Adventure where we will utilize 21st Century literary tools and performance techniques to travel to unfamiliar places. Using our names, the subconscious, and imagination as our transportation, we will discover worlds within ourselves that lay dormant, but complete. Everyone has stories buried inside themselves; during this Adventure, we will dig until we unearth what lives beneath. Join us for an evening of defining, (re)defining, discovering, and/or (re) discovering your personal, professional, and entrepreneurial self/intent.”
