TEDxPeacePlaza is the TEDx event for the Japantown and Fillmore neighborhoods of San Francisco. http://tedxpeaceplaza.com/
This year's speakers include: Richie Nakano, Dianne Fukami, Sheryl Davis, Niles Lichtenstein, Lisa Q. Fetterman, and Ryan Howell.
The event theme is "Renewal." Renewal is about growth, change, re-adapting, or repurposing old solutions to new challenges. The history of the Japantown/Fillmore neighborhood becomes a catalyst for powerful voices and broader discussions of how to preserve the most important essences of the past while evolving into the present and future.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
