TEDxSantaCruz 2011: Engage!

When: Saturday, June 11th, 2011, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Where: The Cabrillo College Music Recital Hall

What: TEDxSantaCruz was a full-day event featuring riveting talks and performances from a diverse range of inspired individuals largely from the Santa Cruz area and sprinkled with outstanding TED talks. Each speaker framed their presentations around the theme, Engage!

Thanks to everyone who was part of TEDxSantaCruz. Our presenters, audience, sponsors, volunteers, crew, Cabrillo College students, and organizers all created a truly remarkable day shared by everyone at Cabrillo College and those viewing the livestream. We hope that we will be able to make TEDxSantaCruz an annual event to be shared by our community and the world every year.

We will be posting photos of the event on the webiste, and videos of each of the presentations on the YouTube TEDx channel in the coming weeks. We will provide links to all of the online TEDxSantaCruz videos here on the TEDxSantaCruz website, Facebook page, and Twitter profile.
