October 20th 2012, Jannika Nyberg and Tahia Ahmed took to the stage of the OmniMax theatre to deliver their speech “Piecing it Together” for TEDxKidsBC’s fall conference : Connect.Inspire.Act.
The pair are still reeling from the excitement! With over 400 audience members ranging from age five to fifty- five, the energy in the big domed room was overwhelming. The talk, focused on the importance of creativity in shaping and re-building communities to be thriving spaces all folks can feel empowered by. This talk was followed by back to back workshops on community development through creative empowerment aimed at children and their families.
