ReImagine Toledo: TEDxToledo

Tying Toledo's past to the future.



This video is from TEDxToledo 2013.

"We're all products of the time and the culture that we live in. Even today. What makes these people different? They stepped out of that box and said: I can do something different, I can do something better, I can do something for the future."

When I was asked to participate in TEDxToledo back in 2013, I was unsure how I would fill 14 minutes with Toledo history focusing on the idea of "reimagine." Fortunately. I leaned on the stories I've learned about Toledo's past and I pulled together a presentation that focused on my favorite part of history: people stories.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection.
