Tickets are now on sale for TEDxFulbrightDublin on Saturday, April 5th, 2014 in the Smock Alley Theatre, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland. We encourage you at act quickly, as we have a limited number of tickets that we can sell.
Tickets must be purchased through http://www.tedxfulbright.org/dublin-register/.
There are two ticket prices: €25 for a standard ticket and €20 for a student ticket (student ID required) plus a small handling fee.
We have an exciting schedule and speakers and performers come from the Fulbright community and further afield! The TEDxFulbrightDublin speakers are being revealed each week on the TEDxFulbright website, but we are delighted to announce that Kevin Owens, Fulbright Alumnus from the United Kingdom and Design Principal on the London Olympics will be joining us! In addition, we are thrilled to welcome the following Fulbrighters to the stage:
- Catarina Marvao is a Fulbright Alumna from Trinity College Dublin. Her talk, entitled “Dancing as a Source of Success and Happiness,” will explore the importance of dance to broader successes in life. A dance performance will be part of this presentation.
- Breandan Mac Ardghail is a Fulbright Alumnus in the Irish Language. His talk, “Gaelscoilis: An Error-laden Pidgin or a Deviously Creative Creole,” will explore a new “inter-language” that is developing in Irish schoolyards and argue that students are imaginatively creating a whole new language.
- Sheryl Sorby is a current Fulbright Scholar from Michigan Technological University at the Dublin Institute of Technology. Her idea worth sharing is about Recruiting Women for STEM. Focusing on spatial skills, Sorby will discuss how even a small amount of spatial skills training will lead to an increased number of women in engineering.
Stayed tuned to the website next week for the next round of speaker announcements!
