Being a part of TEDxBeaconStreet was extraordinary. I particularly loved how the organizers tried to capture the multigenerational energy of Brookline and Cambridge. Talks and activities designed for young people during part of the day, and the other part packed with the intellect and research and creativity that overflow in this corner of the Boston area.
There are going to be a ton of amazing field trips called Adventures throughout the year--access to parts of the city you won't get anywhere else. If you're a Boston buff, definitely register or like them on Facebook to get more information.
You can read my little profile at their site. Lots more talks to come. Also a duet with cello and beatbox.
