The Value of History
Feb. 27, 2024 – 6-7:30PM at transformGSO
(doors open at 5:30PM)
111 W. Lewis Street, Greensboro NC 27406
Join our TEDxGreensboro Salon team for a new thought-provoking discussion. With the influx of misinformation, it’s becoming more difficult to determine factual information from opinions, biases, and ideologies masked as facts. In our open forum, we invite participants to engage in a thoughtful and respectful dialogue to collectively navigate this controversial topic, seeking understanding for a brighter future.
TEDxGreensboro Salon Series
TEDxGreensboro Salon events are smaller events that keep a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s unique because you, the participants, are involved in the conversation. We will share TED Talks plus local speakers to build a dialogue with you – the audience.
There will be questions, thoughts and ideas and we will all wrestle with what it all means.
Enrollment is limited and required – come to mix and mingle with other TEDx’ers and to talk about ideas.
