TED talks are an important vehicle for connecting the community and forging ahead with innovative ideas. These events are hosted throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, but it’s always special when your own city is the site of a TEDx gathering. This June, TEDxMileHigh is coming to the Denver Center For Performing Arts. If you’d like to take part in this opportunity, here’s what you need to know:
TEDxMileHigh is independently organized, and the upcoming event, Uncommon, will only be here for one day: Saturday, June 16. While the discussion topics won’t be revealed until the big day, you can expect thought-provoking and inspirational presentations by the entire lineup of guest speakers. Whether you’ve attended several TED talks or you’re curious to discover why they’re so beloved, this is a great chance to see what it’s all about.
TEDxMileHigh: Uncommon will feature a diverse group of presenters, including luminaries from multiple fields. This event will highlight the necessity of looking at issues from different perspectives and rejecting existing norms when applicable. Each of us has something valuable to offer, and together, we can share our ideas and experiences to help the world move forward. TED events provide a rich learning environment in which we can connect with others from all walks of life, and this session is sure to be an enlightening experience.

If you’re looking forward to additional Mile High events, don’t miss out on the upcoming presentation by Mara Mintzer, the program director of Growing Up Boulder. From Ideation to Implementation will be available on July 14 from 10:00 am-12:00 pm at the Boulder Public Library, where you’ll gain insight into how children’s ideas for our city have been incorporated into city planning projects.
TED is a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to supporting “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Founded in 1984, the organization began its journey as a four-day conference and has evolved to enjoy widespread recognition and influence. Official TED conferences are only offered twice annually, but locally run TEDx events are available throughout the year in a multitude of cities. If you’re interested in tuning in to past TED talks, many of them are easily accessible online. No matter where your interests lie, there’s almost certainly a TED discussion that you’ll find inspiring.
TEDxMileHigh is a wonderful facet of our community. If you’ve always wanted to attend a TED talk, Uncommon is an unbeatable chance to get the full experience without traveling far from home.
