TEDxMileZero - Fiona Rayher - Gen Why: Finding the Strength to Move us Forward

Fiona Rayher, Co-founder and Artistic Director of Gen Why Media, is inspired by democracy through collaborative and community based media and organizing. Gen Why Media is an interdisciplinary creative endeavor that uses media, dialogue, public art, workshops and events to tactically engage young people in new forms of civic participation. Our aim is to adjust, annotate, and re-imagine the potential for community engagement. The project is based in the hypothesis that forming community networks around creative collaboration will generate a willingness amongst young people to become more involved in shaping the fabric and direction of their city, province, country and planet. 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)
