TEDxNatick 2017 Announces Speakers

November 21, 2016

Natick cherishes its reputation for passionate support of arts, culture and learning.  The community is, after all, home to The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN), Natick Center Cultural District, and a thriving arts community. The first TEDxNatick added entertaining and thought-provoking educational talks to that mix. The rave reviews for the 2016 ​​inaugural event made a reprise a natural, and TEDxNatick 2017 on January 21, 2017 promises to be even better than the first.


Members of the community are invited to come to experience TEDxNatick live, featuring short, inspiring talks by an eclectic collection of local innovators and change makers. “We are thrilled with the speaker line-up we have again this year,” said Steve Gullans, TEDxNatick Co-Curator. “It will be a fantastic mix of local and regional speakers who will bring their inspiring stories to the stage.” Speakers include innovators, engineers, composers, artists, community builders, and, Gullans added, “a few surprises.”
