TEDxOKC - Lauren Zuniga - "Energy Drinks" and "A Benediction to Hustlers and Gardeners"

Lauren Zuniga is a performance poet and teaching artist. She lives with her two kids in a women's art collective called Clementine where they experiment with strange things like sauerkraut and cooperation. "I became a poet because it is the cheapest, most portable art form and I think sharing art is the most intimate thing humans do. I want every poem to be an 'invitation to stop swallowing the art in your mouth.' I want every human to know how brave they are," says Lauren. She has competed in eight national poetry competitions including top twenty finishes at the Women of the World Poetry Slam 2008-2010 and has been nominated for State Poet Laureate by IAO. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxOKC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxOKC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
