TEDx CMC Spring Valley at Glenwood Springs

"Sense of Place"

TEDx CMC Spring Valley at Glenwood Springs is a TEDx local production. This will be the first ever TEDx event ever produced at CMC. Four speakers will present diverse topics related to the idea of Sense of Place. Presentations will take place in the New Space Theater on the Spring Valley campus on February 9, 2024.

What is Sense of Place?

Sense of place is the way we understand, identify, and engage with our environments. We all have a sense of how the places we were and those places we live now impact our unique identities. How we see ourselves in our environments, the way our contexts constitute us, is what the idea of Sense of Place illuminates.

There is much more to sense of place and our presenters will show us how much and in what ways.

TEDx limits in-person attendance to 100 people. The New Space Theater is small, cozy, well-lit, and well-equipped to stream the event to multiple locations. We plan to stream the event from The New Space Theater at Spring Valley to other viewing groups on campus and other campuses across the college. Inclusivity, access, and participation is our goal. Sparking ideas, dialogue, and potential action is where we go.
