When you come to TEDxMileHigh: Uncommon, you may be expecting the talks, but the experience goes way beyond just talks. Yes, it’s amazing and inspiring to hear 14 speakers present passionately about public health, technological advancements, fashion, and identity — but it’s a whole different world when you get to interact with big ideas on a smaller scale in real time.

The Exhibits & Experience Lounge is a space where you can immerse yourself with individuals and organizations that are making a positive substantial impact on the Denver community. It’s a place where you can discover the big ideas shared by the speakers on stage, and how those simple ideas transform into life-changing organizations. It’s an opportune moment to connect with brilliant, passionate people and become involved and use your passions to make a difference.

Between the Buell Lobby, the DCPA Galleria, and the Sculpture Park, the exhibits we have planned are uncommon, compelling, and uniquely beautiful. Find more in-depth information about the featured exhibits and experiences below! If you haven’t purchased your Uncommon ticket yet, what are you waiting for?!

Pick a Subject, Get a Poem

Abigail Mott writes poetry on demand. You stop by her booth with an idea and a couple words and you leave with a beautifully written poem, just for you. What makes Abigail’s exhibit so special isn’t only the words that she inspires you with, but it’s the avenue with which she chooses to create her masterpieces. Abigail writes her poems in front of you using a vintage typewriter. This exhibit will transport you to a time and place filled with beauty and sophistication.

Through our partnership with the Boulder Book Store, we will house books written by and affiliated with the Uncommon speakers, books from the TED Library, new releases, and other fantastic pieces of work that will keep you wanting more.

The book exchange is another exhibit that focuses on the allure of the written word. Participating is easy — if you have any books lying around that you think would benefit some fresh eyes—or you’re in the market for a good solid read, take a moment and check the table out. It’ll be a good moment to interact with other bibliophiles! A table will be provided where books can be displayed, but the exchange will rely on you leaving and taking books.
