Why are you volunteering for TEDxManitoba 2012?

It is through ideas that we make sense of the world, our relationships with each other and our capacity to act. Shared ideas define what our society considers normative, what we believe to be valuable and what will be tolerated, encouraged and celebrated.

TED has been a tremendous force in the spreading of ideas, in the creation of new ideas and in the encouragement of considering our ideas a little bit more carefully.

Last year, I had the good fortune of being selected to attend TEDxManitoba, and leapt at the chance to apply my skills to this amazing event. Helping out with TEDxManitoba 2012 a small way that I can contribute to a better society.
