TEDxBelfast -- Anne McReynolds - The Journey to the MAC

Anne McReynolds is Chief Executive of the MAC (Metropolitan Arts Centre), the new multi-million pound arts centre in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter. The journey began in 1996 with a conversation about a new arts centre. Then the opening of the MAC 16 years later in 2012, Anne worked with the whole arts community and had support from among others Meryl Streep who took a personal interest in the project.(At the beginning of Anne's talk she refers back to the previous speaker Nigel Hart who spoke about climbing Everest.)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)
