About this event

This event at Marion Correctional Institution (an hour north of Columbus,OH just off Rt. 23) will generate new ideas about incarceration, rehabilitation, and reintegration with structured and unstructured opportunities for conversation and learning following talks and performances by inside and outside speakers and performers.
Talks will be followed by "SpeedTEDxing," an opportunity for small group discussion. The day will conclude with dinner and conversation in the Polination Station (garden).

Only 70 tickets are available to the general public; all others are by invitation only.
