Our engagement with places and buildings is strong. Why?
This is what we asked ourselves when we chose the theme ‘Time to Engage’ for TEDxOmaha 2018. We knew that this was one of many facets of how we engage, disengage and reengage in the world in which we live, work and play. It is part of the complexity in our communities at a local, national and global level. So, we decided we need to take a year to explore this idea…together.
We invite you to join us on 12 month this ‘journey and adventure’ as we make our first stop at Joslyn Castle Wednesday on October 3rd at 5.30 – 7.30 p.m.. Here we are going to explore what does ‘engagement’, ‘disengagement’ and ‘reengagement’ mean when we talk about places, about buildings, about tangibles and intangibles that make, forge and bond communities.
Sidney Gnann, Executive Director of Joslyn Castle will be our host, and lead us through the maze of placemaking – an eye-opening and intriguing discussion leading to deeper investigation and reflection. So, come prepared to think, engage, reframe, and share, and find out what ‘place’ means to the Joslyn Castle, and what it means to you, your neighbors and the community.
Our second stop will be TEDxOmaha 2018 on October 27th join us and hear what this means to the ten 2018 TEDxOmaha speakers. Our third stop? Well……what do you think it should be?
