Milwaukee’s first TEDx event will take place on May 9th from noon – 4pm in Harambee — a neighborhood with a rich and diverse history and a growing arts and cultural center in Milwaukee. The word Harambee means “all pull together,” a perfect compliment to the TEDx mission!
TEDxHarambee’s theme is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Music), a blended disciplinary approach to tackling social, economic, and environmental challenges. STEAM builds on the work of a growing number of scientists, engineers, and technologists who understand the value in meeting people and communities where they are and by engaging them through the arts. The STEAM model is a lens through which a variety of issues can be viewed, and it is a jumping-off point for conversation, action, and solutions.
