An independently organized TED event on Saturday, Oct. 3, in Manchester will feature 18-minute talks by seven thought leaders, intellectuals and innovators, including Isaac Littlejohn Eddy, visiting assistant professor in Johnson State’s Department of Fine & Performing Arts.
Eddy will present “Extinction of Vulnerability – From Creative Opportunity to a Personal Exit Strategy” as part of TEDxBattenkill, held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Southern Vermont Arts Center.
“Now that we commune with self-curated social media,” he says, “we are less and less often put up against the uncomfortable and the unknown. I use improv and acting as a way to confront fear, tap into new forms of communication and creativity and re-learn how to listen.”
TEDxBattenkill is organized and produced by Michael and Carolina Ellenbogen of Eons Creative.
Tickets are $45 and available online. Proceeds will benefit the inaugural Manchester Screen Festival in June 2016.
