A World First for TEDxLancaster 2016!

TEDxLancaster Executive Director Bob Vasile with TED Curator Chris Anderson at the inaugural TEDx Global Forum in Canada this past June.

TEDxLancaster will be one of the first TEDx events in the WORLD to have a "direct to camera" talk, a new experiment direct from TED.  TEDxLancaster Executive Director Bob Vasile attended the inaugural TEDSummit in Canada in June.  Along with 400 other TEDx organizers from over 60 countries, Bob worked with TED Curator Chris Anderson and the rest of the TED team on the first ever TEDx Global Forum, which helped direct the future of TEDx events worldwide.  One of the ideas to come out of this was a new direct to camera speaker format.  Instead of having the speaker live on stage, their talk can be livestreamed or recorded and played at the event.  This allows for much more flexibility for the speaker's content.

TED is allowing TEDxLancaster to have one speaker deliver their "idea worth spreading" in this experimental format.  In the next few days, we will be revealing the speaker that will be a part of TEDx history.  Don't miss out on this historic first!  Ticket sales will be ending soon.  Get tickets here.  To see the stellar speaker lineup, click here.

Thank You to the Ware Center!


TEDxLancaster is held at the prestigious Ware Center in downtown Lancaster.  Without the generosity of Laura Kendall (Director of the Office of Visual and Performing Arts at Millersville University) and the Ware Center, TEDxLancaster could not exist.  The Ware Center is a major underwriter of TEDxLancaster and we are deeply appreciative of the support we receive.  The Ware Center provides a wide variety of events and exhibitions ranging from student and faculty works to touring internationally acclaimed ensembles that the campus community, local and regional residents and visitors can enjoy.  A diversity of art genres as well as diversity within each art genre is offered as well.  To learn more about the Ware Center and to see their schedule of events, click here.
