Admission is free and open to the public.
The GBC ACE Committee hosts TED Talks once a semester as part of their mission to expose the community to new experiences, cultures and viewpoints.
TED Talks is a non-profit organization that works to spread ideas in the form of short lecture videos, covering topics from science to business to global issues, according their website www.ted.com.
GBC ACE has hosted themed TED Talk sessions in the past, however; this session is slightly varied, said Justine Stout, ACE committee member.
“The committee makes their decisions while keeping in mind themes that relate to empowerment and diversity,” said Stout. “The last TED Talk of the session is usually our main attraction. This time we chose a discussion geared towards our nursing and health science students, as well as healthcare providers in the larger community.”
Featured in this TED Talks even include the following speakers and topics:
ACE projects are funded, in part, by grants from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the WESTAF TourWest grant program.
