JACKSON, WY — TEDxJacksonHole will not come to The Center stage this fall.
Instead, organizers are taking the season to regroup reimagine what the event can be.
The announcement came in a press release last week.
“The power of ideas has never been more profound than in our digital world today. But ideas are simply not enough,” the release said. “What brings them to life is the personal engagement of the people in the room. As we look to develop more engagement and deeper connections within our community leveraged off new ideas and innovation presented at our events, TEDxJacksonHole is seeking new and intentional collaborators to help us reimagine ways to deepen the impact of our consistently sold-out events.”
This would be TEDxJacksonHole’s 10th season. Instead of filling The Center stage. TEDxJH organizers plan to brainstorm ways to turn one signature evening into something bigger, and with a deeper impact. They hope to add more intimate salon events and maybe even workshops leading up to keynote evening.
“[Jackson] is such an amazing place,” said co-organizer Julie King. “We want [speakers] to come and experience it and be able to touch more people.”
The main-stage event is powerful on its own, Kling said, but the real impact “is in the dialogue.” Kling said the goal of this regrouping is to figure out how to have more intimate and meaningful interactions between the speakers and the community.
“It’s about allowing for that by creating more space around the event, and smaller events to lead up to the big night.”
TEDx licensee and co-organizer Lisa Samford said this fall is an opportunity to “work with innovative partners to make a greater impact in our community.”
“In our 10th year of programming, we have an amazing opportunity to help great ideas inspire great deeds,” Samford said.
