Victoria’s fifth annual TEDx conference is happening this November 21st with events at three venues around town – and this year, the theme is (drumroll…) IMPACT. Isn’t that fitting?
We’re all quite excited, not just because impact is something we’re very enthusiastic about here at One Net Studios, but also because our co-founder/Transmedia Director Nicole Sorochan is one of this year’s speakers. She will be giving a talk at the McPherson Playhouse, where the particular topic of focus is ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’.
There are a ton of other great minds on the bill this year, including Frances Krusekopf, pioneer of Victoria’s first Nature Kindergarten program; Melissa Ann Daniels, Harvard-educated lawyer who led her nation (Athabasca Chipewyan) in its litigation against Canada and the oilsands industry; and Nathan Keune, a local grade 12 student who developed a self-diagnostic test for a rare genetic disorder.
Without giving too much away, Nicole’s talk will include a glimpse into the experiences that led her to pursue impact creation for a living; specifically, our recent Amplify HER project and how she took the film’s premise and used it to build a positive movement around the new feminine paradigm.
Last week Nicole was featured on The Zone where they’ve been inviting some of the TEDx speakers to preview their speeches. Have a listen, then go buy your ticket!
