Ideas make the world go round. One idea can give birth to another, which could possibly impact entire communities. So what makes an idea worth sharing?

Nonprofit think collaborative, TED, has been sharing ideas and voices from individuals of all walks of life globally since 1984. Originally created to speak on topics of technology, entertainment and design, the foundation now presents short talks covering almost every subject imaginable.

On Thursday, May 28, the women of Tucson will have their first opportunity to take part in TED’s knowledge spreading mission.

The TEDWomen conference is a three-day event in Monterey, Calif. gathering unique voices on women’s issues. While attending the event in person is costly at $2,500, a session of the conference is being offered for free via a live stream to Tucsonans.

TEDxStarrPassWomen will take place at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort, 3800 W. Starr Pass Blvd., from 6 to 9 p.m. During the event, participants will view seven 18-minute TED Talks addressing the theme, “Momentum. Moving forward. Gaining speed. Building traction.” Speakers include Mary Robinson, Jimmy Carter, Sakena Yacoobi, Memory Banda and more.

Guests will then discuss the ideas presented, network and share ideas about community enrichment in an "All Five Senses" reception starting at 7:45 p.m.
All men, women and children are invited to attend this free idea-sharing event, continuing TED’s work to spark global conversation about the issues that affect our world most.
