The Girl Trap: Laura Merage at TEDxMileHigh

How does art affect, benefit, and change women in society? After immigrating to the US from Iran at the age of 15, Laura Merage has dedicated her life to participating in this question. A renowned artist with studios in Denver, Hawaii, and Israel, Mrs. Merage participates in social entrepreneurship by offering art as a way to express emotion, impact society, and create change. In this talk, Mrs. Merage asks real questions and shares her emotional story of art as an outlet, an expression, and a way to build community. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
