Attendees of the inaugural TEDxMileHigh 2011 shared that they loved the presenters and content, but wished there was more time to meet and connect with fellow TEDxers. With this in mind, the 2012 TEDxMileHigh experience offers x-panded opportunities to get to know others, connect with TEDxMileHigh speakers and performers, and become immersed in ideas worth spreading. Join us on Thursday, May 31st from 6 to 9 p.m. at RedLine Denver for TEDxMileHigh’s X-clusive Kickoff Reception, where you will get a sneak peak at a traveling exhibition organized by Art Works for Change entitled Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art. This exhibit, which brings together the work of 26 internationally known contemporary artists, is intended to inspire the belief that communities can change a culture of violence. Join TEDxMileHigh speakers, partners and producers to enjoy an open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a live performance and a surprise announcement for this kick-off to the TEDxMileHigh weekend. Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased at http://www.tedxmilehigh2012.eventbrite.com. Space is limited. Want more ‘x’? Cap off your TEDxMileHigh experience on Saturday, June 2nd from 7 to 9 p.m. by attending the TEDxMileHigh Speakers Banquet at Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House. Think of this as an x-clusive opportunity to continue discussing the power of great ideas with TEDxMileHigh 2012 speakers, performers and community influencers over a delectable dining experience complemented by live entertainment. This is not a ticketed event and only available to TEDxMileHigh presenters, producers, partners and individual donors ($250 level and higher). For a limited time, you can do both. We are pleased to be able to thank TEDxMileHigh 2012 Patrons ($250 individual donor level) with one ticket to the May 31st X-clusive Kickoff Reception, one VIP Ticket for TEDxMileHigh 2012: Risk & Reward, and an invitation to the Speakers Banquet immediately following TEDxMileHigh 2012. Space for these opportunities is quite limited, so gain unique access to an incredible x-perience by becoming a TEDxMileHigh Patron at http://www.tedxmilehigh2012.eventbrite.com.
