TEDx Nashville 2012 - Impact: Making a Difference

TEDxNashville 2012 banner

TEDx Nashville was back at TPAC for its third annual event.

This year's theme was Impact: Making a Difference. The amazing list of confirmed speakers will be sharing on everything from changing your brain without surgery to communicating with extraterrestrials, child literacy, and unlocking your creativity with paint. Southern Word, Nashville's crew of compelling high school spoken word poets, will be making an appearance, no doubt to bring the audience to their feet once more.
