Theme Frontiers of Humanity

Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.
-Dorthea Brande

TEDxBlackRockCity 2011 was a one-day event of talks and performances that explored and embodied the frontiers of human knowledge and experience.

Our speakers and performers reflected a wide variety of the creative dimensions of Black Rock City, a temporary city of over 50,000 people formed in the Nevada desert once a year to celebrate art and creative freedom. Our goal was to explore the frontiers of art, dance, civic action, ecology, music, design, philosophy and technology, illuminating and to provide a stage for what is most profound about this remarkable community.

TEDxBlackRockCity fostered active learning, conversation and celebration of the creative explorations that sustain and flourish within Black Rock City — ideas that can change the world. Ideas that are worth spreading.
