TEDxSaskatoon 2010

Last weekend in Saskatoon marked my participation in the Global Ted phenomenon, by photographing the TEDxSaskatoon 2010 event. I got to hear some inspiring talks on various ideas worth sharing, like the importance of educating women in the third world about water, new ideas about art in health care, and how the internet is the new “open door policy” in a closed door society. I was inspired and enjoyed talking to the speakers, especially Jeff Nachtigall, who has invited Paul and I for a personal tour of the Sherbrooke Long Term Care Home art facility, for which event Paul and I both are extremely excited. I felt like I really connected with a lot of the speakers, and it was a great privelege to be at TEDxSaskatoon as a volunteer. They’re hoping to make it an annual event, and it would be great to be a part of it again.
